Sport Wales to 'refresh' governance code following review – appoints Welsh Sports Association to help

Sport Wales has appointed the Welsh Sports Association (WSA) to help update and bring its Governance and Leadership Framework (GLFW) up to date.

First launched in 2015, the GLFW has been credited with delivering a wide range of improvements to the governance of Welsh sport, by driving "effective behaviours and cultures within sporting organisations".

There has, however, been cultural shifts in sports governance and policy since the inception of the GLFW in 2015 – identified by a recent Sport Wales review of the framework.

The review highlighted that the GLFW should be refreshed in a number of areas that have risen on the agenda since 2015 – such as ethics, integrity and duty of care; finance and risk management; the importance of behaviours and the need to develop and share good practice.

Following a "competitive procurement process", Sport Wales has now appointed the Welsh Sports Association (WSA) to provide the GLFW support in 2019-20.

"The WSA submitted an innovative bid and have many existing relationships that will be beneficial in delivering the support to build upon the significant impact that the GLFW has had," said Owen Burgess, senior officer for Sport Wales.

"There was a sense around five or six years ago that the governance of sport in Wales wasn't as strong as it could be.

"Since the introduction of the Framework, more than 70 per cent of governing bodies in Wales have changed their Articles of Association.

"This demonstrates that organisations have used the GLFW to create permanent developments to create fresh thinking and more diverse leadership in their organisations."
