British Weight Lifting strategic vision for 2021 – 2025: Stronger Together
Over the next four years our mission is to educate, inspire and create greater opportunities that appeal to a more diverse and inclusive audience resulting in greater levels of activity and a fitter, healthier and stronger nation.
The BWL Stronger Together strategy is split into two key themes:
Showcasing strength as a lifestyle
As an advocate for strength; creating positive experiences for all; connecting strength to health and well being and connecting communities beyond the traditional boundaries.
As an enabler of sporting success
Where membership is at the heart of everything we do; enabling talent and performance ambition; attracting and retaining a talented workforce and bringing innovation to the sport to secure its future.
Through this strategy we hope to get more active and stronger communities, effectively tackle inequality; ensure sustainability and be successful and respected as a sport.
