Welcome to Active Merthyr Tydfil

Active Merthyr Tydfil is the sport and physical activity development department for Merthyr Tydfil CBC.

Active Merthyr Tydfil’s role is to develop the provision of sport and physical activity across Merthyr Tydfil.  We do this in a number of ways.  We work closely with schools to support the development of extra-curricular opportunities and upskill school staff.  We support local clubs, groups and organisations with funding applications, advice and development opportunities. We develop new initiatives to tackle barriers to participation and ensure that everyone across Merthyr has the opportunity to be physically active.  Also, as a team we advocate and promote the benefits of sport and physical activity.

Our vision is ‘Active Merthyr, Better Merthyr’

Our mission to support this is ‘to create a thriving and sustainable sporting and physically active landscape for Merthyr Tydfil where sport and physical activity positively impact lives’.

We believe that sport and physical activity offers so many more benefits than just being physically healthy.  It offers inclusion, friendship, confidence, opportunities to achieve and much more.

So if you are looking to get active and don’t know where to start, or you're a local provider who needs some support, get in touch and one of our team will be happy to help.
