Canoe Wales is committed to supporting everyone to take part in paddlesport and to promote social justice through our work. We believe that our beautiful lakes, rivers, and coastline should be accessible to everyone who wishes to enjoy the outdoors from a canoe, kayak or paddleboard.
Our commitment to equality is therefore fundamental to who we are.
We strive to ensure that people can participate in all our activities to the full extent of their own ambitions and abilities, and we will always respect everyone’s rights and dignity.
We warmly welcome everyone – whether as staff, volunteers, coaches, or members – to participate in paddlesport and we will actively seek to promote diversity at every level of the organisation.
When we say ‘everyone’ we mean all people without regard to their age, sex, gender identity, disability, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity status, religion or belief, race, ethnic origin, socioeconomic status or sexual orientation.
