Inclusive Shooting with STS
The Importance of Being Inclusive
Target Shooting is a sport that anyone is able to take part in and succeed at the highest level with shooting a core element of the Commonwealth Games, Olympics and Paralympics. At Scottish Target Shooting we are continually monitoring information on our members, coaches and facilities to check for opportunities to make shooting more inclusive.
Scottish Target Shooting achieved the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard in January 2017 and will be working towards the Intermediate Level over the next 3 years. Our Equality Policy can be found in our Business Strategies document on the STS Policies page and further down the page is our Equality Action Plan outlining how we intend to identify and then support increasing diversity within the sport.
If you wish to give target shooting a go but don't know where your nearest club is, or perhaps have any concerns about whether they can support you, please use the form below to get in touch with us and someone from the STS Team will be in touch to try and help. Alternatively, please visit the Contact Us page on our website to contact the team directly.
Our Equality Strategy
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. To help focus our work on equality, Scottish Target Shooting has developed an Equality Action Plan.
Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form
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.
