Inspiration to bring transformation
This exciting programme will get more people hooked on an active lifestyle. Together we want to see healthier communities and a step change in the number of people being physically active, and that’s why we are changing the way we develop sport in North Wales. By the end of 2018, North Wales will have its own unique organisation, Sport North Wales, to get communities active. We want to work with you to create it. This new organisation will lead our work with partners to transform sport and physical activity across the region.

At Sport Wales our interest is helping everybody get active and stay active – for life. At the skate park or on the beach. In the pool or at school. At the club or on the track. We are all different and have our own interests but what’s important is that everybody has the skills and opportunity to be active. Together we can tackle the low levels of participation amongst certain groups. In Wales today far more boys play sport than girls. The same is true with other groups. It’s vital that more disabled people, more people from diverse communities, and more people from lower income families take part in sport and physical activity. Everyone must be able to reach their potential – whether that is being active with friends, enabling other people to be active, joining a community 10k run, or becoming a top athlete.
