Sport Wales is the national organisation responsible for developing and promoting sport and active lifestyles.

It is a Welsh Government Sponsored Body. Its vision is to 'Unite a proud sporting nation, where every child is hooked on sport for life and where Wales is a nation of champions'.

The Welsh Government sends Sport Wales an annual remit letter. The remit letter confirms the amount of funding being provided and sets out the priorities and targets which Sport Wales should focus on in that year.

It is also responsible for distributing National Lottery funds to sport in Wales.
