Wales'>Sport Wales has created a new role – head of partnership development – to lead a new approach to ensure community sport becomes “more diverse, enjoyable and accessible”.

The creation of the role is part of a strategy to develop a wide-ranging, diverse partner network within Welsh sport – involving all the sector's stakeholders.

A key element will be to look at cross-public sector working and strategic partnerships that will help tackle barriers to participation.

The use of insight and data to support organisations to engage more people in regular participation will also play a major part of the work.

Director of community engagement, Graham Williams said: “For our existing partnerships we want to work together on positive ways of working for the future including how we can apply insight more effectively across all our networks.

"Strong diverse partnerships will also help sport engage with more people and get them enjoying all the benefits that sport can bring."

The role will be taken up by Jane Foulkes, who will step up from her role as senior officer within Sport Wales's community sport team, in March 2018.
