Elmbridge Borough Council is pleased to announce that the applications for annual Grant Aid Scheme for local sports clubs and sports people will open at 9am on Monday 2 April and will close at 9am on Friday 18 May. A total amount of £10,000 is available to apply for this year.
This scheme is available to help sports clubs based in Elmbridge to provide greater opportunities for a wide range of people to participate and compete in sport. Grants may be awarded towards the cost of buying equipment, tournaments or competitions, and publicity. Sports clubs are eligible to apply for grant aid up to a maximum of £750 per club.
The Grant Aid Scheme can also help individual sportspeople reach their full potential by giving them support with their training costs, purchase of equipment to assist with performance or travelling expenses. They can apply for a maximum of £350.
Cllr Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said, “The Grant Aid Scheme is an exciting opportunity for clubs and individuals who need a helping hand. It is a valuable scheme to improve and develop existing sports clubs, encourage participation in sport, support events, raise the standard of coaching, and reward individual athletes’ talent and achievement. Don’t delay, apply now!”
