insport Development

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

Disability Sport Wales know that the best understanding for local delivery, and the clearest understanding of the demographics of the immediate community is the local authority, and for sport – this starts with the LA Sport Development department.  The principle behind insport Development is for DSW to develop a Toolkit which will support the development of inclusive thinking, planning, development and delivery by everyone within the Sport Development team 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 local authority have towards disabled people, and to support the identification of an understanding of what inclusion means to them.  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 local authority will be assigned a Case Officer who will support the sport development team in achieving the aims against each standard (and this will mean greater partnership working throughout the Council at the higher-level standards); and at the end of each stage the team will present their journey so far to an independent panel.  Demonstration of support for each aim is identified 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.

Colour

Select an option:


 

The Light colour mode is designed using Disability Sport Wales brand colours, to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA. This should provide good contrast for most users.

The Dark colour mode also uses Disability Sport Wales brand colours, but inverts light and dark to create a "night mode" version. It is intended for people who dislike bright screens, or wish to use their display in a more energy-efficient way. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The Calm colour mode uses colours which may be more suitable for users who are sensitive to bright colours, or prefer lower contrast. This option does not meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AA, so may not be suitable for users with visual impairments.

The High Contrast option is tailored to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidance Level AAA, and is intended to make this website as accessible as possible to users with the lowest visual acuity. Ideal use of this setting would be combined with Medium Text or Large Text text sizes.


Buttons

Our default button style uses block-colour backgrounds that contrast against the page background.

You can optionally change this to use buttons that maintain the same background colour and text colour as the main website content, and signifies that is a button with an outline. This may be preferred by users who can read light-on-dark or dark-on-light with greater comfort.

Use of Capital Letters
