Our Story and Values
Founded on 8th May 2012, we are committed to helping to develop communities and delivering cost effective, timely and professional services.
Having an applied belief and systematic approach to one’s behaviour based in knowledge, values and reason. Sporting communities is an ethical company and as such examines its behaviour towards the outside world. It takes into consideration morality and ethical reasoning. For instance, the company has given itself a moral duty to conduct its operation within the following core principles:
To treat all with Equality and Dignity
To conduct all of our business in a safe and sustainable manner
To act within the law and to not work with others who are unprofessional
To operate as an ethical company, it is essential that all employees agree to accept and work to the company’s code of ethics at all times during their work period. This is a condition of employment.
Working with communities is key to achieving our vision. We believe that to provide a truly valued service, we must include the community in the decision making process and be clear about what we can realistically achieve. Being principled and having integrity is critical in gaining mutual trust.
We use sport and the creative arts as a tool to engage with individuals and communities on a deeper level. We then wrap around services designed to initiate social, individual and community development. Our approach ensures that people are truly able to achieve positive change.
We divide this work into 4 interlinking, conducive strands.
