UK Sport offer individual athletes funding if you are nominated by your Olympic or Paralympic National Governing Body (NGB), via an Athlete Personal Award application process, which is a contribution to your living and personal sporting costs incurred whilst training and competing as an elite athlete.
UK Sport cannot offer funding direct to athletes outside of those nominated by these Olympic or Paralympic NGBs, therefore we suggest an athlete’s first point of contact should be your sport. For a list of contacts please visit our links www.uksport.gov.uk/links.
