Yanchep SLSC All Inclusive
The Yanchep SLSC considers sport and recreation to play a vital role in improving the health and well-being of all people regardless of their age, gender, religion, cultural background, sexual orientation, disability, income or geographical location.
The club supports the Equal Opportunity Commission’s Policy Framework for Substantive Equality with its purpose to eliminate systemic discrimination and achieve its vision to create an inclusive and harmonious Western Australia, where all are treated equitably and fairly and are able to reach their full potential with dignity and respect.
Inclusive participation is about recognising differences between individuals/groups, and is achieved when all Western Australians feel engaged, welcomed and provided with practical opportunities to participate.
For sport and recreation to flourish and grow there needs to be continual evolution and implementation of practical strategies to make environments fair, safe and inclusive for all.
Western Australia’s diverse population is its strength as well as a challenge. The challenge is to facilitate a good quality of life for Western Australians while ensuring that those who are vulnerable, due to a variety of circumstances, are assisted and supported to achieve a similar quality of life to their peers.
The Equal Opportunity Commission’s Policy Framework for Substantive Equality is the guiding mechanism for government and community organisations to achieve this. Substantive equality involves achieving equitable outcomes as well as equal opportunity.
Sport is widely regarded as a core component of inclusion in Australian communities through its ability to engage people from a variety of backgrounds. Taking part with others in mutually enjoyable sporting activities or as part of a club is a way of forming and maintaining relationships. It can contribute to social inclusion and a sense of belonging and promote trust, cooperation and tolerance.
