Grants are available to clubs and organisations who wish to develop facilities, people and new initiatives that increase participation in physical activity.
Community Chest Community Chest is a Sport Wales Initiative for community sport and physical recreation.
Community Chest offers grants of up to £1,500 in any 12 month period for activities that:
- Encourage more people to be more active, more often
- Raise the standards of existing activities
The scheme is open to any group as long as they hold a bank account in the organisation's name. Community Chest will normally consider all the costs associated with ensuring a project is successful. Normally grant aid is only to provide for up to 20 sessions of a project, after which time projects are expected to become self-sufficient. Apply
