The Be Active Fund offers two grants to address different challenges faced by clubs and organisations

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.

There are two types of grant available, all designed to address different challenges faced by clubs and organisations.

Be Active Fund offers two grants to address different challenges faced by clubs and organisations

1. Protect grants of £300-£5,000 are available for emergency support
To help protect clubs and community organisations or groups that are at immediate financial risk as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This grant is intended to help organisations that are unable to meet their financial obligations because of Covid-19. For example, to cover fixed costs (e.g. rent and utility) that are no longer supported with revenue.

2. Progress grants s of £300 – £50,000* are available
To help progress sport and activity to the next step and support long-term sustainability. This grant is intended to help clubs and community organisations:

  • Tackle inequality;
  • Create long-term solutions to be more sustainable
  • Take innovative approaches

The Progress grant can also fund items that are essential for a return to play.
* You will need to make a contribution of 10% for grants over £10,000 or 20% over £25,000.
