Disability Gymnastics

National governing body (NGB): British Gymnastics

British Gymnastics nominates disabled gymnasts to SportsAid who are aged 12 to 18 and have exceptional circumstances which would benefit from additional financial support. Their level of performance must be at the national level and/or within the national squad.

The nomination process

SportsAid only supports unfunded athletes who are nominated by their sport's national governing body. This ensures the right athletes get the right help at the right time - enhancing the sports' talent development programmes rather than duplicating them. Nominations take place every autumn. You should contact your sport about whether you meet the criteria for the next round of SportsAid awards. Meeting the nomination criteria does not necessarily guarantee a SportsAid award because the charity can only distribute what it has fundraised.
