  4. Survey to map out good practice across Wales

A new online survey has been launched to help Sport Wales identify successes, challenges and ideas that people have around making sport and physical activity more inclusive for children and young people in Wales. 

Sport Wales is interested in hearing from those who are creating opportunities for children and young people, either in a paid or voluntary role.

Explaining the survey further, Owen Lewis, Sport Wales’ Director of Sport Systems, said: “The impact of the Covid pandemic and the current cost-of-living crisis have both highlighted how important it is that we keep asking ourselves what we can do differently to make sport and physical activity appealing and accessible to everyone in Wales.

“It is clear we need to keep adapting what we offer so that we remove any barriers to sport and physical activity. We want everyone to be able to access activities in ways that suit their individual needs throughout their lives. Opportunities should be inclusive, safe and affordable as well as providing people with the skills to achieve their goals. But above all else, sport and physical activity has to be enjoyable!

“We know there are thousands of people across Wales who are doing fantastic work supporting young people to be active. We want to better understand what works, what doesn’t, and why, and look at how we can use the experiences of those already doing excellent work to help others.”

Owen added: “This important survey will help us to map out good practice across the country so that we can identify potential leaders and changemakers in this network.

“We’d also like everyone who completes the survey to consider forwarding it on to friends or contacts who may also be interested in sharing their views as we want to learn from as many people as possible.

“The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. We would really value your contribution to help to shape the future of sport in Wales.”

The survey is being conducted on behalf of Sport Wales by a team from the Centre for Health, Activity and Wellbeing Research at Cardiff Metropolitan University, led by Professor Diane Crone.
