Sport Wales fully supports the need for the General Duty as set out in the Equality Act 2010. As a public body we understand our obligation to demonstrate the steps that we are taking to fulfil our specific duties. Through this website portal we intend to display our information, monitoring statistics, policies and actions. 

Women and Leadership Programme

As part of Sport Wales' commitment to the Vision for Sport in Wales and equality, the Women in Leadership Programme was established to take positive action to help address the low levels of women in senior positions in sport in Wales.

    Participation data and headline messages

    The work of Sport Wales involves working with key partners to develop sport, increase participation and drive excellence in sport. Through our surveys and participation data we can monitor participation and steer work to ensure equality of opportunity. We are aware that the breadth of this information requires expansion, and that as an organisation we need to familiarise ourselves better with unprotected characteristic groups. Find out more here.

    Active workforce data and headline messages

    Sport Wales is committed to its Vision for Sport. To achieve this it is imperative that our army of volunteers, coaches, leaders and administration experts is increased, supported and developed. To increase sporting participation across all sectors of our diverse Welsh community, we will need to work to ensure that the sporting workforce is also diverse. Find out more here.
