Level Paying Field supports National Inclusion Week

Level Playing Field is delighted to help raise awareness about the National Inclusion Week which is taking place on the 25th September to 1st October 2017.

As a charity working within the disability sector and accessibility at sports stadia, we have seen the many benefits and value derived from having an inclusive work force representing the community we support.

Tony Taylor, Chair of Level Playing Field said: “Level Playing Field has seen a major growth in the work it carries out over recent years both for individual supporters and organisations, and we strongly believe that having an inclusive and diverse work force has played a key part in the overall growth of our charity.  Level Playing Field recommends that sports clubs provide an inclusive and accessible working environment for all employees.  It is pleasing to see this being put in practice and we note a recent example with Swansea City showing their continued commitment through the recent appointment of Mark Phillips as their Disability Access Officer”.

The benefits of having an inclusive work force are well documented. Inclusive Employers state:

“Diversity in the workplace can have numerous benefits to you as an employer. Put simply, the greater the mix of people in your business, the greater the mix of skills, experiences, perspectives and ideas you can draw on. But the benefits of diversity and equality cannot be fully achieved without creating an inclusive environment.”

National Inclusion Week is an annual campaign run by Inclusive Employers to raise awareness of the importance of inclusion in the workplace and the business benefits to having a diverse and included workforce.
