Be Active Wales fund

Sport Wales has reallocated budgets to create a fund to help support clubs and not-for-profit organisations to protect their sport offer during the pandemic, and to prepare for their reopening. Preparing a sports club or project for restarting means adapting the offer to retain and attract interest in the club during the pandemic and in the aftermath. The new Be Active Wales Fund will be critical in supporting grassroots sport to survive the lockdown and thrive beyond the pandemic.

This fund will replace the Community Chest Grant and the Development Grant.

What can I apply for?

The Be Active Wales Fund has two main purposes:

  1. To Protect: Providing financial support for organisations that are in immediate financial risk or danger. Grants of £300-£5,000 are available for emergency support. Clubs can apply for help with revenue expenditure on:
  • Rent
  • Utility costs
  • Insurances
  • Facility or equipment hire (where there is a fixed cost)
  1. To Prepare: Providing financial support to help prepare organisations to re-start their activity or grow participation. 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.

Who can apply?

The Be Active Wales Fund is available to organisations delivering community sport and physical activity. Its priority at present is to protect or prepare organisations following the Coronavirus lockdown.

These organisations include:

  • Local not-for-profit sports clubs and projects.
  • Voluntary and community sector organisations that deliver or enable sport and/or physical activity, including organisations that are not solely or primarily sports organisations and have an important role to play in keeping people active, that may need support for other parts of their organisation to remain open.
  • Small charitable trusts that provide sport or physical activity.
  • Regional bodies that provide sport or physical activity

How can I apply?

Applications are made online using the links on the Sport Wales website:
