Talent Support

The Talent Support scheme has been set up by the Sports Council for Wales to provide financial support to athletes identified by Welsh governing bodies as having the potential to meet the UK Pathway, or Élite Cymru criteria for non-Olympic sports, within a two year period. Financial support is provided to talented athletes for competition and training (in addition to that provided by the governing body), equipment and travel. Two instalments are made payable to Welsh governing bodies as part of the annual grant process and are subject to strict monitoring in relation to performance improvement.

How to Apply

National governing bodies will have identified potential applicants in their high performance plans and all enquiries should therefore be directed to the relevant governing body in the first instance.
