insport NGB

The insport NGB programme is part of the broader insport project, which aims to support the physical activity, sport, and leisure sectors delivering inclusively of disabled people. 

Disability Sport Wales know that no one understands a sport better than the sport itself, and so the principle behind insport NGB is for DSW to develop a toolkit which will support the development of inclusive thinking, planning, development and delivery by everyone within the National Governing Body (NGB) so that ultimately they will deliver across the spectrum to disabled and non-disabled people, at whatever level they wish to participate or compete.   The intention is to initiate and then support cultural change with regards to the approaches the sectors have towards disabled people, and to support the identification of an understanding of what inclusion means to them as a collection of organisations.  The result will be that opportunity is widened, participation increases, disabled people become more active and engaged (either as players, or officials, coaches, or volunteers), and we collectively achieve the sector vision for a nation who is hooked on sport for life, and one which consists of many champions.

The programme consists of 4 incremental Standards (Ribbon, Bronze, Silver and Gold), against which a series of aims have been identified.  At Ribbon standard the NGB will be assigned a Case Officer who will support the governing body achieving the aims against each standard; and at the end of each stage the NGB will present their journey so far to an independent panel.  The NGB demonstrate the support for each aim by uploading relevant documents and information to a bespoke portal , and the content of the presentation then serves to illustrate the extent to which philosophies of inclusion have been embedded throughout the organisation, and the difference that working towards inclusion has made.


Here you will find the NGBs that have an insport standard and are working towards the next.
