“It has really changed me as a person but also you can see the change around the organisation.”
Play Proud is a leadership, network and coach-centred training programme developed by Common Goal. It aims to promote inclusion and safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth and adults, enabling them to be themselves on and off the pitch.
The programme focuses on empowering organisation leaders and sports coaches through activities covering leadership skills and tools, coaching inclusion methodologies, influencing change, and knowledge acquisition on discrimination towards LGBTQ+ communities. It equips participants with a Play Proud toolkit, empowering them to create inclusivity through leadership action.
Participants also design and implement local action learning projects designed to increase inclusivity and be a catalyst for concrete change.
