UK Sport supports the country's best Olympic and Paralympic athletes, and co-ordinates bids for staging major international sporting events. The body is responsible for investing around £100 million of public funds each year – from both the National Lottery and the Exchequer – in high-performance sport.

The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) is a Sport England funded partnership between talented athletes, education institutions and the national governing bodies of sport. The Scheme helps athletes in education – aged 16-plus – to get the very best from their sporting and academic careers without having to make a choice between the two. SportsAid has overseen and managed TASS since it was launched in 2004.
