Equally Active Policy

The Equally Active Policy discusses Council’s position in relation to advancing gender equity in sport and recreation and to undertaking initiatives to change the physical, social, and attitudinal environments that support women and girls to be active.

The objectives of the Policy are to:

  • Identify Council’s position in relation to advancing the gender equitable investment in, and usage of, sporting infrastructure.
  • Recognise that affirmative measures are required to be put in place to overcome structural barriers and to address inhibitors that prevent inclusion, participation and access to resources and opportunities.
  • Facilitate the continued work with partners to ensure collaboration and alignment of initiatives to promote equity in sport delivery and access to recreation opportunities.
  • Acknowledge that Council will invest resources in more than sport to ensure optimal conditions and systems to support women and girls of different ages, abilities and backgrounds to be engaged in physical activity.
