Eligibility to be a Company Director
Subject to any provision in the company’s articles, any person can be a Director unless they have been disqualified from so acting under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 or by being an undischarged bankrupt.
Note also that a Director or shadow Director of a company which has gone into insolvent liquidation is prohibited for five years from being a director or shadow director, or being involved in the formation or running of a company which has the same, or a very similar, name to the liquidated company. (Insolvency Act 1986, sec216).
Welsh Judo working towards important milestone in Equality
Welsh Judo has achieved both the Foundation and Preliminary level of the Equality Standard in Sport. This is a significant achievement for Welsh Judo as it formally recognises our drive to embed equality in the development of our Organisation and in the development and delivery of our services.
Our Work in Equality
Welsh Judo subscribes to the principles of equality of opportunity and strives to ensure that anyone participating in judo is able to do so in a discrimination-free environment. We believes that everyone is entitled to be treated fairly regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, parental or marital status, disability, religion, colour, race, ethnic or national origins, or socio/economic background.
The UK Equality Standard for Sport is a framework and set of standards aimed at improving the equality work within Sports Governing Bodies and similar organisations. We now aim to work towards the intermediate level, which ensures we continue to make significant progress towards greater diversity across the organisation and ensures equality is mainstreamed across the organisations functions, policies and procedures.
As part of our work, Welsh Judo has created an Equality Working Group. This group has been driving forward equality work across the whole Organisation since 2016, with a main focus on breaking down barriers to participation in judo, especially considering under-represented groups. The group now acts as a task and finish forum which works to develop effective structures, processes and delivery across the organisation.
