Be Active Wales Fund

It’s one of the most challenging times ever for sport in Wales.

We are standing by you, and we’re committed to supporting Welsh sport and physical activity in any way we can.

We want to Protect and Prepare what we see as the most valuable assets in our communities – the clubs and community organisations or groups that help people be active and take part in sport.

The Be Active Wales Fund will invest £4million in community and grassroots sport to help restart activity.

What the Be Active Wales Fund will support

The Be Active Wales Fund has two main purposes:

Protect

Prepare 

To protect clubs and community organisations or groups that are at immediate financial risk and need support.

Grants of £300-£5,000 are available for emergency support.

Providing financial support to help prepare clubs and community organisations or groups to restart, respond to, or grow participation, in direct response to Covid-19.

You will find detailed guidance about these two areas as you continue reading. 

Grants of £300-£50,000 are available to prepare your club or organisation. You will need to make a 15% contribution for grants over £5,000, which could be from the club's own funds, or grants from elsewhere.

Given the challenges of the Coronavirus regulations for sport and physical activity, grant funding is aimed at responding to the challenges of restarting (and NOT a general development grant to make changes at your club or activity).

Club Solutions is our resource to support volunteers and clubs in Wales. It contains advice to help clubs run effectively and grow, which could be useful in your application.

If you are approved a grant of more than £5,000 you will need to complete a Club Solutions club assessment (within the last year) in order for the funds to be released to you.
