Sports Funding

Funding opportunities to assist with developing sports and physical activities within the Vale of Glamorgan.


There are a number of grants available for sports clubs in the Vale including those highlighted below.


Be Active Wales Fund

The Be Active Wales Fund aims to protect and progress community sport clubs and organisations in Wales through the Covid-19 pandemic and into the future.


The fund has already helped many clubs and organisations across Wales face the challenges caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. It will continue to provide funding to help clubs tackle these challenges, and to ensure sustainability for years to come. 


The £4 million fund has been made possible through money Sport Wales receives from Welsh Government and the National Lottery.
