Talent Cymru

Sport Wales no longer administrates a specific Talent Cymru stream of funding. 

Many National Governing Bodies (NGBs) in Wales receive a National Lottery funded performance award from Sport Wales. As part of this award National Governing Bodies can choose to provide direct support to athletes towards the costs of competition and preparation. The scale and mechanisms for this are a matter for individual NGBs and each NGB that provides direct athlete support will have its own criteria.
