Boost for Clubs as Modernisation Grant 2022 Opens for Applications

29/11/2021 00:00, I Mewn Blog /

Welsh Athletics are delighted to announce the Modernisation Grant is now open for applications. Following a year of restrictions gradually unlocking and the return to our sport increasing, the Modernisation Grant will support our clubs to continuously grow and develop through 2022. Over the years we have been proud to support applications that are leading the way via innovative projects that focus on modernising and developing clubs across Wales.

We welcome applications from our affiliated clubs (up to £2000), Regional Athletics Councils, and Schools Districts (up to £1000). Applications that are aligned to the strategy for the sport ‘A vision for Athletics in Wales 2019-2026’, have a focus around increasing engagement and growth of the club, are encouraged, and will be held with higher priority.  

Applicants can get in touch with their local Club Development Officer for advice on completing the application process or for further guidance on what will be funded.

You can download the application form and guidance notes here.

If you have previously received funding through this grant you will need to complete and return a ‘Project Completion Report’ (if not already completed) prior to applying for funding in 2022. You can download this here.

The deadline for applications is Monday 10th January 2022. Completed applications should be emailed to with the subject line ‘Modernisation Grant 2022’. The Grants Panel consisting of the Chair of General Council, the Secretary of General Council, The Welsh Athletics Head of Development and Participation, and one representative from each of the Regional Athletics Councils, will consider and decide on all applications after the closing date for applications.
