Summary (optional)
start content

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
