Sport Wales Community Chest Grant

Fancy £1500 towards your community sport project?

Community Chest offers grant awards up to £1,500 in any 12 months towards:

  • Increasing participation
  • Improving standards

Who can apply?

Any group that holds an account (be it a Bank, Building Society or Credit Union account), in their organisation's name. You'll probably be one of the following:

  • Sports Club or Association
  • Youth Club
  • Community Group

Please note, you will need to submit evidence that your organisation holds a valid account in its name with your application form, as failure to do so may delay your application from being assessed.

How to apply

Community Chest is run in partnership with the 22 Local Authorities in Wales.  To apply for a grant visit and click the green "Apply Online" button on the right hand side. This will take you to the Sport Wales Grants Portal. Here you can register and fill in the online Community Chest application form.  When you submit your application it will be automatically emailed to the Local Authority that your project is based in.

Throughout the application form, if you require more information or guidance about a section or question, click on the nearest blue question mark   where some more information will be displayed.

When completing your application, please ensure you attach all requested documents, especially evidence of your organisation's account (be it a Bank, Building Society or Credit Union account), so that the processing of your application is not delayed.
Following submission of your application form, you will be updated on its progress as it moves from stage to stage through the award process, via email.

Before applying, please read the 3 "Help" PDF documents below, as they will give you an idea of what information is required. They will also explain how to apply for a grant using the Sport Wales Grants Portal, including instructions on how to register.
