Since its creation in 2007, StreetGames has been an active champion, leading innovator and respected partner in the community sport sector. The organisation was founded by Jane Ashworth, who received an OBE from the Queen in 2011 for her services to the industry, and is run on a day-to-day basis by acting CEO, Mark Lawrie.

StreetGames is overseen by a Board of Trustees, led by Chair John Cove, which possesses considerable expertise and experience in the sector. In addition, StreetGames is fortunate to have an Advisory Board made up of leading figures from across the business world.

Both of these leadership groups are passionate about the work that StreetGames does, and have played an important role in helping the organisation to change sport, change lives and change communities.

Equality Statement

STREETGAMES UK LTD (SGUK) is founded on the basis of improving equality of opportunity, specifically equality of access to sport for people living in disadvantaged areas. SGUK is committed to the principles of equality and preventing discrimination and will treat people with dignity and respect. It will promote equality in recruitment, employment and management of staff and trustees and in the delivery of its services. In managing its services SGUK will promote equality across all of its work and in particular ensure that:

  • No employee, job applicant or person using or seeking to use the services and activities of StreetGames UK Ltd is unfairly discriminated against either directly or indirectly, on any grounds.  This includes on the grounds of their age, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, disability, ethnicity, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief (Protected Characteristics outlined within the Equality Act 2010)
  • It systematically collects information regarding all of the Protected Characteristics from its Board, staff, partners and projects on a voluntary basis in order to accurately assess the make-up of its organisation and service and, where appropriate, to develop positive action programmes that target any under-represented groups to ensure representation that is reflective of the communities we serve. 
  • The Board will seek to achieve greater diversity in its membership, including, but not limited to, Black, Asian, minority ethnic (BAME) diversity and disability.
  • The Board will seek to achieve gender parity in terms of numbers of trustees and there will at all times be at least 30% female membership (4 trustees) on the Board.

The Board have reviewed and approved the new StreetGames Equality and Diversity Action Plan. You can view the action plan below.
