£14m funding for Sports and Leisure Sector

The Welsh Government have announced that they are providing £14m of funding to the Sports and Leisure sector.

The money is intended to support the sector after it has been significantly affected by Covid-19.

The funding is being termed the ‘Sport and Leisure Recovery Fund’ and will complement the Hardship Fund for local government.

Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Lord Elis-Thomas, said:

“I’m very pleased that we’re able to lead the way in Wales in protecting and sustaining this very important part of our society by delivering this targeted package of support.

“Sport across Wales came to an abrupt halt at the beginning of this crisis with an immediate impact. We also recognise that there are significant longer-term challenges facing the sector – linked to gradual reopening and low capacities.  I hope this fund will help with long-term planning and sustainability in the sport and leisure sector - which plays such an important part in keeping the nation healthy and active.”
