To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to encourage greater participation in sport by women of Bangladeshi origin.[HL3473]
In addition, Sporting Equals, one of Sport England's national partners, supports NGBs to attract and engage black and minority ethnic (BME) communities to participate in sport. This support is essentially in the form of the provision of insight and resources to engage members of the BME community, such as Bangladeshi women. Sporting Equals also conducts marketing support activity for NGBs, which impact Bangladeshi women, for example supporting British Cycling's "Breeze" programmes to south Asian women with a focus on Muslim women and girls.
