In 2018, we commissioned research work so that we could better understand the social and economic value of sport in Wales.
The research was conducted by the Sport Industry Research Centre (SIRC) at Sheffield Hallam University.
The first part of the research aimed to measure the social impact of sport in Wales 2016/17 using a Social Return on Investment (SROI) framework.
SROI is a framework for understanding and measuring the non-market economic, social and environmental value created by an activity, organisation or intervention. Our research was the first time a SROI framework had been used to measure the wider social contribution of sport in Wales.
