The deep-rooted inequalities that mean people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds are far less likely to be physically active have been laid bare in a new report.
Sport England’s new report, ‘Sport for all – why ethnicity and culture matters in sport and physical activity’, is the most comprehensive ever picture of how people from BAME communities are taking part in sport and physical activity.
The report considers:
* Overall levels of activity and the significant differences between different ethnic groups
* The types of activities undertaken by adults and children from different ethnic backgrounds
* The impact of overlaying multiple demographic characteristics upon activity levels.
The findings are drawn from the survey responses of more than 100,000 people who contributed to their most recent Active Lives Adult and Children Surveys.
The report shows the people from Asian, Black and Chinese backgrounds are far more likely to be physically inactive than those who are White.
People from these ethnic groups are also far less likely to volunteer in sport and enjoy the benefits associated with it.
