SportsAid is the only national charity its kind, proudly supporting young British sportsmen and women aspiring to be Britain’s next generation of Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth and world champions.

SportsAid provides financial awards, recognition and opportunities to young sports people who have been identified by their sport’s governing body as having the potential to succeed in their sport and become the sporting heroes of tomorrow.

These athletes are:

  • Likely to already be representing their home nation or Great Britain at age group level
  • Typically aged between 12 and 18
  • 20% are disabled athletes
  • 50/50 split in gender
  • Spread across more than 60 sports
  • Located all over the UK

Importantly, these individuals are supported by SportsAid at a critical time in their career and often before they receive any additional funding towards their sport. It costs over £6,000 to support a talented athlete each year and this cost is usually shouldered by their parents or guardians.

In 2016 at the Rio Olympics 65% of Team GB and 68% of Paralympics GB had previously been supported by SportsAid showing just how important SportsAid support is.
