Sarah Chaffey

Communications and Campaigns Officer

Sarah joined Women in Sport in early 2023 as Communications and Campaigns Officer to shape our messaging around gender equality in sports.

Sarah grew up being dragged to orienteering events each Sunday and supporting her parents in their various ultra-marathon pursuits, but never claimed sport for herself until she started climbing during university.

Now, you’ll regularly find her panicking at the top of climbing walls in west London, trying to pretend she’s not scared of falling. Climbing has allowed her to make life-long friends and taught her how push through fear, whilst spending time in some of the most beautiful natural landscapes our country has to offer.

Having grown up in the Peak District, making sure all women and girls have access to quality green spaces as an outlet for exercise is important to Sarah, who found running outdoors to be about the only thing that could keep her spirits high through lockdown.

Before joining Women in Sport, Sarah was working in communications at a north London disability charity and studying to complete her degree in Journalism.
