Equal Opportunities within STS

Importance of Monitoring Equal Opportunities

Scottish Target Shooting (STS) is committed to making target shooting accessible to all. This will be accomplished by upholding the principles of equality in all aspects of our work. We will audit and monitor our business activities regularly, and take appropriate steps if it appears that our commitment to equality is not being delivered effectively. This work is being carried out as part of our responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 and as part of the accreditation process for the Equality Standard for Sport. 

We are collecting data on the profile of our employees and volunteers in terms of equality. Your cooperation in helping us to gather this monitoring information will greatly aid our efforts to ensure that all employees and volunteers are treated fairly regardless of age, race, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or belief. Without this data, it will not be possible to identify any current areas of under-representation or potential inequalities, and as such, it will make it much more difficult for us to tackle these issues.

How will your personal information will be treated? 

Responses will be treated in the strictest confidence, in line with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998. This means that:

  • Your information will be stored securely with restricted access;
  • Information will be anonymous (this means that there will be no way in which you can be identified), there is nowhere on the form that asks for your name; and
  • Information will be combined in the form of summary reports which will be reported to our board and published on our website.

Instructions for completion

Please complete the questions below - your responses will then be sent electronically to the Equal Opportunities Officer and will be completely anonymous as we do not require a name or contact details to be supplied. Please direct any questions you might have to the STS COO at coo@scottishtargetshooting.co.uk or by calling 0131 467 2489.

Thank you in advance of your cooperation.

Kind regards,

Oliver Barsby

Chief Operating Officer & Equal Opportunities Officer
