What we do

The overall aim of Sport Wales' research is to provide high quality evidence on issues, processes, and outcomes to inform the development and delivery of policy relating to sport in Wales.

Sport Wales has a long history of promoting and carrying out research.  It is a core function of our organisation.

We have three guiding principles for our research; they are:

  • To reflect (and challenge) Sport Wales' strategic priorities;
  • To maintain the highest standards to ensure research outcomes are credible and defensible; and
  • To reflect Sport Wales' vision for equality.

We are in the process of developing our new strategy for Research which is due to be published in the New Year.  The Strategy will reflect the current and anticipated policy priorities, and the social and political context within which sport is developed, delivered and experienced in Wales.
