WSA Knowledge Bank
You don’t need a Welsh cap, a trophy cabinet or even a pair of trainers to volunteer in sport…
The objective of the WSA Knowledge Bank is to encourage professionals from all parts of business, who may have a link to Wales, to get involved as ‘professional volunteers’ in sport, which will enable sport to ‘build back better’. The WSA Knowledge Bank was launched at Wales Week in London 2020. The concept of the Knowledge Bank is professionals from all walks of life –including those with marketing, social media, accountancy, business development and governance backgrounds – can ‘deposit’ donations of their time – days or hours into the Knowledge Bank, and sports can ‘cash it in’ to help improve their organisations and therefore the members they service. Given how we have all been forced into this remote way of working, it doesn’t matter where on the planet you live you can still get involved, if you are keen to do so.
The skills that many sports organisations in Wales are crying out for are often the sort of things that come as second nature to business professionals. This isn’t a call for cash, what’s most valuable to sport is your time and talent – your corporate expertise and experience, to help us nurture, support and develop a vibrant Welsh sport sector that is set up for success.
From as little as a donation of a day’s worth of expertise to our Knowledge Bank, your business know-how and capability could make a huge positive difference to the viability and resilience of a sports organisation, and ultimately, to the well-being of the people of Wales.
