Wales Deaf Sport are seeking a consultant or consultancy to support and direct the development of their strategy
Wales Deaf Sport are seeking a consultant or consultancy to support and direct the development of their strategy which will define the focus of the organisation until 2025.
The following documents are available to support the development of this strategy:
In 1946, the South Wales Sports Council was created by a group of deaf people who were very interested in playing sports. Mainly the sports were played indoors across South Wales Deaf Clubs. The sports are darts, snooker, billiards, dominoes, swimming and outside for football. There were 7 deaf clubs Bridgend, Cardiff, Llanelli, Pontypridd, Neath, Newport and Swansea.
In the mid-eighties or mid-nineties, the name was changed to Wales Deaf Sports so that it can cater for all the deaf people all over Wales. In the millennium Wales Deaf Rugby, Wales Deaf Golf and Wales Deaf Football were set up. WDS have hosted the International Deaf Lawn Bowls Championship at Llandrindod Wells in 2007. A few years later Wales Deaf Bowling Association and Wales Deaf Clubs Association were set up.
Wales Deaf Sports exists now to provide support to anyone in sports that need help with training, planning etc. Disability Sport Wales have provided support and grants over the years to help Wales Deaf Sports and is hopefully ongoing. Wales Deaf Sports now looks to support all Deaf Sportsmen and Sportswomen.
Wales a Country where all Deaf and Hard of Hearing of all ages who wish to participate in Sport and Exercise can do so without hindrance
In partnership with UK Deaf Sport, Disability Sport Wales, Wales Governing Bodies of Sport and Deaf and Hard of Hearing Organisations in Wales organise and develop opportunities for Deaf and Hard of Hearing adults and young people to participate in Sport and Exercise. This will then ensure Wales Deaf Sports becomes an effective organisation with a deliverable Strategic Plan which delivers success for both Community and High Performance.
UK Deaf Sport is the National Federation for Deaf Sport in the UK. Working with partners and organisations across the Four Nations, the vision is that every Deaf person is active and inspired by sport and physical activity. The mission of the organisation is to lead, encourage, enable and support more opportunities for deaf people to participate in sport throughout their lives and more deaf athletes to perform on a world stage.
UK Deaf Sport delivers its vision through three key objectives:
UK Deaf Sport has worked very closely with Wales Deaf Sport and Disability Sport Wales over the past couple of years to develop a better understanding of the landscape and priorities for deaf sports in Wales. We will continue to develop and strengthen this relationship.
It is also going to be essential that the WDS Strategy development contributes to the sector vision for sport in Wales and intersects with Disability Spot Wales Strategy so that the combined approach to the delivery of sport in Wales is philosophically consistent and inclusive of Deaf and disabled people.
