The National Disability Sport Wales Development Programme is a joint initiative between the Sports Council for Wales, the Federation of Disability Sport Wales and the 22 local authorities across Wales.
The scheme is aimed at developing quality community based sporting and recreation opportunities for disabled people throughout Wales.
The program is promoted and delivered through a network of Disability Sport Wales Development Officers based in each local authority in Wales.
Disability Sport Wales aims to...
- create new clubs and give professional advice and support to improve existing clubs
- increase the number of disabled people who participate in clubs, sports groups and sessions
- improve the quality and number of coaches and volunteers within disability sport through coach education and other systems
- create new and further develop existing opportunities for disabled people to compete in sport at local, regional and national level
- work closely with the Federation’s National Performance Manager ensuring that individuals with potential are given the opportunity to train and, where appropriate, compete to the highest standards.
