Community Chest


This is a Sport Wales (SW) National Lottery funded scheme which is designed to make a difference to sport locally. The primary purpose of the SPORTLOT Community Chest is to encourage and support good projects which will create new or improved sports activities and opportunities that are additional to what is already in place and would not be able to happen without a grant. This means that a sports club can apply for funding towards coach education courses for it coaches/volunteers. Coach education is a high priority of this grant scheme.


Who is eligible?


Organisations can apply, provided they have a bank or building society account in the name of the organisation. This means that the sports club will need to apply on behalf of the coaches within a club
