Chance to Shine’s commitment to reflect, support and celebrate the diversity of the communities where we operate is fully embedded in our purpose – to inspire all young people to play and learn through cricket - and our organisational values: passionate, inclusive, inspiring, ambitious and fun.

Chance to Shine maintains a Diversity Action Plan (DAP) covering Recruitment, Engagement and Progressing Talent from within. This plan contains short, medium and long terms goals and can be found in this section of the website. 

In 2021 the charity continued our commitment towards this important piece of work by:

  • Introducing a Youth Advisory Board, to create a regular avenue for CTS trustees and executive team to hear, understand and consult with youth voices on matters relating to the charity
  • Commenced development of an Equity, Diversity & Inclusion strategy to complement and enhance the Charity’s existing strategic direction
  • Introducing inclusive recruitment practices such as blind shortlisting and where job vacancies are promoted
  • Maintaining Board gender diversity to 42% and the Senior Management Team to 50%
  • Increasing the diversity of employees

Diversity of participation and equality is of huge importance to Chance to Shine. 51% of all participants are girls and 79% of Chance to Shine Street participants are from ethnically diverse communities. Our programmes aim to support all young people to benefit from cricket.
