Sarah Powell will be talking about the sport sector’s shared vision to get every child “hooked on sport for life” which should be at the heart of delivering a healthier, smarter, more sustainable Wales.

To achieve this vision it is acknowledge that both Sport Wales and partners are going to have to work very differently.  There is a shared vision and goals, but we need to unite fully behind these, and encourage other sectors to join us if we are to make this vision a reality.  This is a significant challenge, but the rewards in achieving them will transform Welsh sport at all levels and have a lasting impact on the whole of Welsh society.
