Information on our commitment to widening participation in sport.

Sport and physical activity are vital in promoting health and making people feel good about themselves and as a nation.

Sport and physical activity can bring people together, binding and regenerating communities. 

The Welsh Government aims to:

  • through Sport Wales, widen participation in sport and programmes targeted at increasing physical activity
  • increase the number of sport coaches and elite athletes in Wales
  • work with national, UK and international sports federations to ensure that more major sporting events are held in Wales in the future
  • attract major international events which deliver a significant economic return on investment
  • extend our free swimming scheme to veterans and serving armed forces personnel on leave.
