Inquiry into participation levels in sport

Terms of Reference


The Committee focussed specifically on sport, but within the wider context of the Welsh Government’s commitment to increase levels of physical activity more generally.


The following areas were examined in more detail:


  • The extent to which the Welsh Government and Sport Wales are achieving the goals set out in the Programme for Government, the Creating an Active Wales action plan and the Vision for Sport in Wales with regard to participation levels in sport;
  • The availability of datasets and statistics to measure participation levels in sport, particularly those disaggregated by equality strand and socio-economic groups;
  • The opportunities and barriers to sports participation that exist for different groups of people, including by equality strand and socio-economic groups;
  • What are the links between programmes to develop sport in Wales and other Welsh Government initiatives to increase physical activity; and
  • The impact of the Olympic and Paralympic legacy, the Ryder Cup and other high profile Welsh sporting events and achievements on participation levels in Wales.
