National Youth Board

The National Youth Board is a group of individuals who are committed to the development of disability sport in Wales.

The board wants to take advantage of all the skills of members by bringing them together to discuss their ideas on how to improve a variety of aspects of sport for disabled people in Wales. The board is an opportunity for the voices of young people to be heard by Disability Sport Wales and so that their ideas could be developed into real
projects.

The aims for the Board:

  • To provide a voice and opportunities for all young Welsh people in sport
  • To challenge societal perceptions in sport for all young Welsh people
  • To advocate for clear access to information about disability sport in Wales
  • To empower young people by developing perspectives on disability sport in Wales

The National Youth Board was the driving force in creating a podcast, to encourage candid conversation about disability, lived experience and how that intersects with sport, physical activity, and everyday life.

The National Youth Board #JustAsk Podcast sought to dispel taboos and make it okay to “just ask” any question about disability, impairment and para sport.

The #JustAsk Podcast has since evolved into The Disability Sport Wales Podcast with James Ledger, where James and his guests talk with the same candour established by #JustAsk.

The Disability Sport Wales Podcast

The Disability Sport Wales Podcast is hosted by T11 sprinter James Ledger and aims to inspire listeners with some truly inspirational stories with sporting celebrities who have overcome significant obstacles to lead incredible lives.
