The Inclusive Clubs project

We work in partnership with the City of Boroondara, Manningham Council, Women’s Health East and Leisure Networks to deliver the Inclusive Clubs project.  

The project includes six free two-hour workshops with the completion of an inclusion assessment and action plan. The aim of these workshops is to build the knowledge of club officials on how to make their club more inclusive by creating safe, equal and respectful environments for all members, particularly women and girls.  

By joining the project, you and your club will benefit from:  

  • Practical training, focused on giving clubs actions to increase their inclusivity  
  • Peer-to-peer learnings from other club officials  
  • Access to high quality templates and resources  
  • A comprehensive inclusion assessment of your club’s culture, systems and policies  
  • Assistance in developing an action plan  
  • A dedicated Health Promotion Practitioner to help you implement the actions in your action plan.
