National governing body (NGB)

British Swimming

British Swimming runs talent programmes with the aim of maximising results at the Olympic and international levels, ensuring long-term success. SportsAid is very much integral to this. British Swimming nominates up to 36 swimmers each year from the talent group Level 3. 

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.
