Sport Wales gives out around £3million of National Lottery funding, each year, to grassroots and community sports clubs and projects. You see some example of these on the Welsh Sport Insider show.
Through our two main grants programmes, Community Chest and Development Grant, grants can range from a few hundred pounds to cover the cost of coaching courses or equipment to start a new team, up to £25,000 for facility upgrades such as new floodlights or pitch improvements.
I’ve recently applied for a grant - Will I still get it?
Yes. Sport Wales’ facilities are closed to the public, and many of our staff our now working remotely, but we are continuing to process the grants currently in our system.
We’re aware that sport in Wales at all levels has been hit with a near blackout in activity. But we still want to support clubs and volunteers to be ready and prepared when the green light comes to resume activity in the future.
We’re processing these grants as quickly as possible. The nature of how we undertake these processes will need to change so please bear with us as our staff set up our systems remotely.
