Following consultation with members, the Welsh Sports Association is launching a new political monitoring service.
Physical activity through sport and active recreation has never been more important to public policy objectives than it is now. With ill-health caused by inactivity high on the Government agenda, it is imperative that organisations within the sport and active recreation sector are able to understand and navigate the political structures of a modern Wales.
Working with Wales’ leading public consultancy, Positif, a comprehensive monthly briefing detailing the political and policy issues affecting the sports sector will now be available to all members via the members only section of the WSA website at the end of each month.
The monitoring service covers the activities of the National Assembly, Welsh Government and political parties, and tracks all forms of legislation through the structures of the Assembly. It also encompasses relevant public bodies in Wales.
Kate Evans, WSA Head of Communications said:
“Leading on advocacy is a key priority for the WSA. We want to make sure our members are well informed so that they can make the most of the opportunities that are presented to them, and help demonstrate to political decision makers the huge contribution that sport makes to the wider public policy agenda.
“We are continuing to expand our advocacy work with the development of a member-led Strategic Policy Group, and this monitoring service is the logical next step to ensure our members can have their finger on the pulse of political activity in Wales.”
