England Boxing wants everyone to feel welcome when taking part in the sport – whether as a boxer, coach, official, volunteer, parent, spectator or in some other capacity – regardless of background, ethnicity, age, gender, beliefs or any disability a person may have.

While amateur boxing is celebrated as an inclusive sport, we as a national governing body recognised that we can and must do more to ensure there is equal opportunity for all.
