Sports Council for Wales puts £2m into workforce fitness


The Sports Council for Wales is investing a whopping £2m to create opportunities for Welsh businesses to encourage workforce fitness.

Funding is available to support active travel plans, fitness instructors and coordinators and purchasing of equipment including bikes, badminton posts, basketball hoops and pedometers.

The Council is also looking at renovating offices to accommodate sporting activities, including the fitting of showers and fitness suites.

Chair of the Sports Council for Wales, Philip Carling, said: “Physical activity is a straightforward and cost effective way of helping employees to be healthier and happier. Taking a broader approach to the health and wellbeing of your workforce and looking after their physical, mental and social wellbeing will not only benefit staff but the business at large.”

Fuelled by a £1m cash injection from the National Lottery and Welsh Assembly Government respectively, the Challenge Fund is set to make up to £10,000 available to organisations with up to 250 employees and up to £100,000 for businesses with a 250 plus strong workforce.
