To drive equality in sport and society across the Commonwealth
We create and celebrate a uniquely inclusive and diverse sporting movement, levelling the playing field and addressing inequality in sport in all its forms, so that all people of the Commonwealth know that sport is for them.

Through sport, we create opportunities for the 60% of Commonwealth citizens under 30.
