Sport Allies


What is Sport Allies?
Sport Allies is a registered charity (char reg no 1169945)  funded by 10% of profits all Warwick Rowers products. The charity grew out of the success of the Warwick Rowers calendar, and the response of many people across the spectrum to our “straight allies against homophobia” message.
Our aims
The role of Sport Allies is to promote sport, and especially team sport, as an inclusive and supportive route to personal growth for everyone. We are particularly keen to promote team sport for people who are excluded on the grounds of gender or sexuality.
This year Sport Allies has:
• submitted a written report as evidence to a British Government inquiry into homophobia in sport;
• commissioned an in-depth academic investigation into the role of sport in perpetuating gender and sexuality-based discrimination;
• participated in their first ever LGBT parade, in London – with the kind and very popular support of the Warwick Rowers!;
• become a UK registered charity. (Charity No 1169945)
Sport Allies are currently developing their first mass media campaign aimed at young people.
