BME Sport Cymru Project is funded by Sport Wales and aims to set up sporting activities for black and ethnic minority people (BME) across six counties of North Wales. The project has been set up to increase the participation of BME people taking part in sport and physical activity, especially among women and girls. One of the aims is to work with sporting bodies and organisations to increase career opportunities for BME people within sport.
