Community Sports


Gwynedd works in partnership with a number of sports clubs throughout Gwynedd to encourage and support the people of Gwynedd to participate in sports as well as supporting local sports clubs to develop and ensure that they offer services of the highest standard to Gwynedd’s citizens. Clubs can submit an application through the Community Sports team for a Community Chest Grant.

Community Chest

The Community Chest is a grant aid scheme funded by the National Lottery and managed by Sport Wales. The Scheme’s aim is to help develop sports and physical activity locally. The largest grant which can be awarded is £1,500. The grant offers opportunities to sports clubs, leisure centres, community groups, outdoor activities and workplace activities. For more information about the overall scheme, visit the Sport Wales website.
