UK Anti-Doping is the national organisation dedicated to protecting a culture of clean sport. Every day, UKAD raise awareness of the issues through our extensive education and testing programme. As well as helping athletes to understand and follow the rules, UKAD also prosecute offenders.

Ultimately, it works for everyone who loves sport – whether competing, training or spectating. Together, we’re creating a level-playing field where all athletes know they can compete fairly and in the true spirit of sport.

UK Anti-Doping is responsible for ensuring sports bodies in the UK are compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code through implementation and management of the UK’s National Anti-Doping Policy. For more information on what we do, please click here.

UKAD is working in partnership with Commonwealth Games England to provide anti-doping education to Team England athletes, support personnel and staff ahead of the Commonwealth Games and Youth Games.

UKAD and Commonwealth Games England agreed a considerably enhanced approach to anti-doping education for Team England’s support staff for Birmingham 2022. Each support staff member was required to undertake the UKAD online Advisor programme or the Coach Clean education programme, depending on their role, prior to the Games to be part of Team England. All competing athletes were offered Clean Sport and Clean Games education workshops in the build up to the Commonwealth Games in 2022 by UKAD.

Both education programmes contain essential anti-doping information and practical advice, including the risks of doping and each individual’s responsibility towards clean sport. This approach supports the prevention work already being done by the English National Governing Bodies responsible for the Commonwealth Games sports.
