Funding for local sports clubs
The Clubs in Crisis Fund, administered by Foundation Scotland on behalf of Made By Sport, offers local sports clubs and organisations the opportunity to apply for a grant to help support young people as they start to recover from the effects of the latest lockdown. The fund will award unrestricted grants of £2,021 to clubs who match the criteria.
They are looking for applications from clubs and community organisations using sport to improve young people’s lives through one or more of the following means:
- Developing life skills
- Building strong communities
- Improving mental health
- Developing employability skills
- Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour
Key to the fund is that it supports clubs and organisations intentionally using community sport provision to deliver wider social outcomes, not those focusing on developing and widening opportunities to participate.
When to Apply
The fund opens on 12 April 2021. Check the Foundation Scotland website on this date to find out more and apply.
