Be Active Wales Fund It’s one of the most challenging times ever for sport in Wales.
Sport Wales are committed to supporting Welsh sport and physical activity.
They want to Protect and Prepare what they see as the most valuable assets in our communities – the clubs and community organisations or groups that help people be active and take part in sport.
The Be Active Wales Fund will invest £4million in community and grassroots sport to help restart activity.
We are aware of a number of clubs that
have received the £10,000 grant that has been
made available to businesses eligible for Small Business Rates Relief with a
rateable value of £12,000 or less. However there does seem to be some
inconsistency across Wales, and therefore sadly we are also aware of a number of
clubs that have been found to be ineligible.
With that in mind, please let us know how you have got on by either
getting in contact with your local Regional
Club Development Officer .
