Scottish Golf is committed to making golf 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.

We regularly collect data on the profile of our staff (paid and unpaid), coaches, officials, board, members and participants in terms of equality. As part of this, we aim to ensure that all job applicants are treated fairly regardless of age, race, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or belief.

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. 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 your personal information will be treated;  Responses will be treated in the strictest confidence, in line with the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018. 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 used as part of the portfolio of evidence that we will submit for the Equality Standard assessment.

You are not obliged to answer all the questions.

If you have any questions then you may talk in confidence to Karin Sharp on 01334 466477.

Thank you very much for helping us in our equality work.

Karin Sharp
Chief Operating Officer
