Welsh Judo Association recognised for commitment to inclusion

We are proud to announce the Welsh Judo Association have recently been awarded the insport Bronze standard for demonstrating our commitment to inclusion and increasing sporting opportunities for disabled people.

Darren Warner, CEO said, “We are delighted to have recently achieved the insport NGB Bronze standard. As an organisation, it has given us clarity, direction and support on how to be a more inclusive national governing body. We really looking forward to continuing this journey. We’re already seeing a real difference in the engagement of people with disabilities. Last year we launched our Visually Impaired Olympic Pathway as part of our Talent Cymru Programme, leading to a gold and silver medal at the Commonwealth Championships in September. Fantastic to see such an instant impact in a judo community that is fast expanding!”

We would like to thank Disability Sport Wales for their fantastic support and we are looking forward to continuing to work alongside them as we continue on our insport journey as we develop and grow this provision alongside our 2022 Strategic Plan.
