If you are an NGB or Athlete and want to formally appeal how UK Sport arrived at a decision, we have a procedure for you to use.
The procedure covers Appeals against the decision making process behind specific UK Sport decisions and therefore is not an Appeal against the decision itself.
The areas broadly cover two areas, funding decisions relating to NGBs, Major Events and Athletes and recognition decisions relating to NGBs.
Appeals are heard by a separate Appeals Panel. The Appeals Panel does not have the authority to make funding decisions but its decisions are binding.
This document explains the procedure and sets out UK Sport’s Rules of Appeal [PDF, 111k].
The process is administered by Sports Resolutions (UK) who provide independent dispute resolution services for sport in the UK.

If you want to make a complaint we have a procedure for you to use. The procedure explains what you can and cannot complaint about. The complaints procedure is a staged procedure being the most appropriate way to settle complaints as quickly and efficiently as possible. Under the procedure, you may be able to take an unresolved compliant to an Independent Complaints Review (ICR) service, depending on the nature of the complaint. The ICR does not have the authority to make funding decisions. You cannot appeal and complain on the same issue. It is expected that your compliant is about an issue in, or your relations with, UK Sport that has been raised with us.
