National governing body (NGB)
The British Disabled Fencing Association targets SportsAid's support towards athletes on the wheelchair fencing performance pathway at the Talent Squad level, or just below it, who do not receive TASS funding. The athletes must demonstrate high potential and a commitment to the sport.
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.
