Sport and Creative sector

Welsh Government has announced a new support package for the sport and creative sector in Wales to help mitigate the impact of coronavirus.

To summarise, the funding being made available includes the following:

  • £7m Arts Resilience Fund led by the Arts Council of Wales. Working with the Arts Council, this fund will support artists and arts organisations most in need and least likely to benefit from other support programmes. 
  • £8m Sport Resilience Fund. This fund will be led by Sport Wales and will be used to support sports clubs and partner networks.
  • £1m Creative Wales fund will provide support for grassroots music venues to respond to immediate pressures (up to £25K per business).
  • £1m Cultural Resilience Fund for museums, collections, conservation services, archives and community and public libraries to respond to short-term pressures and recovery actions on a grant application basis.
  • £750k Emergency Relief Fund to support the independent sector sport, museum and heritage organisations with cash flow and other critical issues. This includes two grant programmes administered by the Welsh Museums Federation and Sport Wales.
  • £250k Digital Library Resources

The funding is being made available by the Welsh Government, the Arts Council for Wales and Sport Wales. For more information about the £18m support for the culture, creative and sport sector in Wales please read the full press release.
