Community groups and sports clubs, who encourage local people to be physically active, or take part in sport, are being invited to take advantage of funding opportunities.

The Community Chest Grant Scheme is funded by Sport Wales via the Lottery Sports Fund for Wales but is managed locally by Bridgend County Borough Council.

There is £29,000 of funding left for local sports clubs and organisations across the county borough.Any organisation with a bank account in their name can apply for a grant of up to £1,500.

Funding can be provided for any 12-month period and for a variety of purposes, including start-up costs, projects that deliver increased participation and improve standards, coach education and volunteer development, equipment, training, initial facility hire and instructor’s costs for new sessions.

The Community Chest application process is an online system. Applicants need to visit the Sport Wales funding pages where advice and guidance is given on what sort of things can be funded.

If you are part of an organisation or sports club, and would like to find out more about how to apply, please contact Andrew Jones on 01656 642745 or email
