Positive action on BME participation

Sport Wales, and Welsh sport, has taken positive action to engage BME communities in sport.

 BME Sport Cymru (funded by more than £500,000) includes numerous BME organisations to develop and sustain sporting activity https://www.wcva.org.uk/what-we-do/bme-sport-cymru

Funding for the project has been extended. Successes include training up more than 150 volunteers and the project has supported 79 community groups.

 As well as this project we funded a BME cricket project and gymnastics project through our Calls4Action programme, while our funded partners plan annually for tackling inequalities.

 The work to develop a new Vision for sport in Wales will guide how we collectively tackle inequalities - but we know tackling inequalities will be vital in the future.
