Since 1976, SportsAid has helped aspiring British sportsmen and women when it matters most - at the very start of their journey towards becoming the next generation of sporting heroes.
The charity's Patron is Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
SportsAid helps young athletes to overcome the financial obstacles they face in their bid to become Britain’s next generation of Olympians, Paralympians and world champions. The cost of their sport is one of their greatest challenges and despite already representing Great Britain at competitions all over the world, most receive no funding beyond what SportsAid provides through fundraising.
SportsAid is honoured to have Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge as the charity's Patron. Since joining SportsAid in 2013, her support has had a huge impact on the next generation of British athletes.
SportsAid works with the governing bodies of more than 60 sports to ensure the right athletes are helped in the right way at the right time. Every athlete who receives the charity's support is nominated by their sport's governing body.VIEW ALL NGBs

The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme, now known as Sport England TASS, gives young people across England the opportunity to get the very best out of their academic and athletic ability. The scheme has helped to produce almost 150 Olympic and Paralympic medallists and is globally-recognised for its ability to help them pursue sport and education at the same time, without having to make the hard choice between one or the other. SportsAid has managed TASS since it was launched in 2004.Learn More
