Proud 2 Play's Rainbow Roadmap program provides a structured five-step approach tailored for local governments to support inclusive sports clubs in their areas. The program begins by evaluating a club's existing LGBTQI+ inclusion measures, then designs specific educational resources to address any shortcomings. A key component of the program is involving the community, particularly LGBTQI+ individuals and allies, in shaping a more inclusive sporting culture. By endorsing the Rainbow Roadmap, local governments can significantly contribute to creating a sporting environment where everyone can enjoy the benefits of sport and recreation, regardless of their gender identity or sexuality.
