Sport Wales Community Chest Review:
A note for clubs… please be aware that Sport Wales are currently conducting a review of the Community Chest scheme. Community Chest is one of Sport Wales’ grants schemes and is designed to enable grassroots sport and physical activity clubs, groups and organisations to; start up, improve and develop/grow.
Sport Wales are seeking views from all partners and beneficiaries to get a better and up to date understanding of current needs that, if met will enable more grassroots clubs, groups or organisations to start up, grow or improve,
To help in this, we are asking all clubs that have engaged with the grant scheme to take 5 minutes to complete this short survey. Note: all feedback is anonymous. To access the survey please follow this link. https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=152639399887
