SportsAid's West Midlands Talent Fund has been inducted into United by Birmingham 2022. United by Birmingham was established by the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee.
The United by Birmingham 2022 programme welcomes awarded non-commercial, distinct and exceptional projects, events or initiatives to show their support for the Games and join in the celebrations through participation in its community programme. The programme supports the Games' missions by driving positive change, improving health and wellbeing, and showcasing the very best of Birmingham, the West Midlands and the Commonwealth.
United by Birmingham 2022 recognised SportsAid’s new West Midlands Talent Fund initiative which aims to support 100 talented young athletes from the region each year from 2022-2026. The culmination of the initiative will coincide with SportsAid’s 50th anniversary year and the next Commonwealth Games in 2026. The Fund’s vision is to ensure that every young person from the West Midlands nominated to SportsAid for support will benefit from an award.
The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will bring people together to celebrate a global community and our human potential. The Games will provide a unique festival of top-class sport, inspirational culture and innovative business, making a world of difference for everyone in Birmingham, across the West Midlands, throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.
