Coronavirus Support for Sports Clubs

We recognise that clubs, groups and athletes have been hit badly by the recent pandemic and in response to this, we are offering a new grant programme which is available to clubs, organisations, groups and participants wanting to restart some sporting activity following Covid-19.

This grant is to help with any additional costs that they may incur as a result of adhering to government / national governing body guidelines that have been put in place. 

Grants are also available to individual athletes whose personal circumstances have been affected by the pandemic and may struggle with membership and fees to continue with their previous activity.

Before applying please read the conditions and guidance notes here. [154KB]

The application process is open from until end of December 2020.
