Development Grant

Sport Wales is funding projects that develop sport and physical activity in the community. Their aim is to get more people, more active, more often, so funds are available to kick-start new projects or raise the standard of current activities.

 

Grants are available from £1,501 to £25,000 for a range of projects including small scale facility projects (such as floodlighting) and projects with costs including larger scale equipment and coach education.
