Below shows a list of funders for training/education, equipment and small capital projects.

Local Funding

Bridgend County Borough Council launched the Bridgend Sports Support Grant in 2020-21 for the first time, which targeted all sports clubs in the locality facing significant challenges as a direct result of the COVID-19 emergency.  This year, the Bridgend Sports Support Grant will revert to its original purpose of encouraging growth, improvement and removing barriers to participation in sport - primarily aimed at supporting mini, junior and youth teams, underrepresented and disadvantaged sports / groups.
