Promoting Equality in Sports

The 2-year BME Sport Cymru Project is funded by Sport Wales and aims to set up sporting
activities for black and ethnic minority (BME) people in Cardiff. This is to increase the
number of BME people taking part in sport and physical activity.

It also works with sporting bodies and organisations to increase career opportunities for BME people within sport.

Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) is the lead partner and Race Equality First is
the delivery partner in Cardiff.

Project Aims
  • To increase the participation in sport and physical activity amongst key groupsfrom the BME communities in Cardiff
  • To co-ordinate opportunities for BME indivduals and organsiations to participate more frequently in sport and physical
    activities and work towards assisting them to integrate into mainstream activities
Key Activities
  • Deliver and support sport and physical activities for BME people of all ages (young people, adults and families)
  • Co-ordinate and host events and training opportunities which will support the delivery of BME sporting opportunities
  • Support individuals and organisations applying for funding for sports
  • Identify key issues and barriers that prevent BME people accessing sport and physical activities and develop actions to reduce or remove barriers
  • Develop links with mainstream clubs and National Governing Bodies to promote sustainable participation in sport and
    develop pathways of progression for BME volunteers, coaches and participants
