Advocacy & Policy

A core part of the mission of WSA is to provide an independent collective voice for our members. With continued pressures on public spending it has probably never been so crucial as it is now to ensure that the importance and value of sport to the whole of Welsh society (and the role which NGBs and their volunteers play in delivery) is recognised by politicians and key decision makers.

We are determined to fight the corner for continuing investment in sport not only for its own sake but for its broader positive benefits for Welsh society as a whole.

In addition, we need to maintain a constant vigil to ensure that legislation or developing policies do not have negative effects (sometimes unforeseen) on our sector. We aim to ensure that we are alert and that we make any necessary case in a manner which is effective and evidence-based.
