Advocacy and Policy

A core part of the mission of the WSA is to provide an independent collective voice for our members. With continued pressures on public spending, it has never been so critical that the value of sport to the whole of Welsh society 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 the broader positive benefits it brings to Welsh society.

In addition, we maintain a constant vigil on the development of policy and legislation which may affect our sector – making the case for sport in a manner which is both evidence-based and effective.

We employ a wide range of methods to achieve this including:

Campaigns for the Sector

Championing the issues at the heart of the Sector’s priorities

Policy Affecting Welsh Sport
