DCMS Ministers and officials meet a number of stakeholders in sport on a regular basis.

‘Kick it Out’ has been a powerful voice working within football to tackle all forms of discrimination for the last 25 years. They were among the key attendees to a homophobia in sport roundtable event DCMS hosted in 2018, and DCMS and the Home Office partnered with the organisation and the Premier League to launch at that event new guidance to help football club safety officers and stewards deal with homophobic, biphobic and transphobic abuse, as well as a short film to raise awareness of gay and transsexual inclusion in football. The Kick it Out app remains the most-used reporting mechanism relating to incidents of discrimination within football.
