Governance, Strategy and Impact

 This page contains relevant information on governance structure, strategy and impact.  

It is designed to enable members and stakeholders to better understand:

  • who is involved in the governance of the organisation
  • England Handball’s aims and objectives for the future 
  • England Handball work to this point.  

It is also part of England Handball’s commitment to meeting the requirements of the Code for Sports Governance.  

England Handball is committed to meeting the diversity targets set out in the Code and has amended its Equal Opportunities Policy and Articles of Association to reflect this commitment.  

England Handball has adopted, as part of its Memorandum and Articles of Association, a target of a minimum of 30% of each gender on its board and currently exceeds this target. In addition, the board is committed to achieving gender parity and greater diversity within its members including, but not limited to, Black, Asian, other minority ethnic groups and people with disabilities. To support this work, the board is in the process of developing a Diversity Action Plan which will be published on this page once agreed.
