Suffolk Sports Fund
Posted: Wed, 19 Jul 2017 09:40
Suffolk Community Foundation is working in partnership with Suffolk County Council, Borough and District Councils in Suffolk and a number of businesses to deliver a community sports fund that aims to increase access to sport, particularly for those who are excluded through disadvantage.
There is overwhelming evidence of the positive effects of sport and physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle. This grants programme seeks to help improve the lives of those living in Suffolk by enabling better access to sport at grassroots level.
Grants of up to £2,000 are available for registered charities and community groups that are looking to provide opportunities that will increase participation in a sports activity for those who struggle to access mainstream sports activities due to disability, isolation, disadvantage etc. This fund particularly welcomes applications to support local grassroots projects that are looking to promote tennis in areas of deprivation (including rural) and help those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable.
Please contact a Grants Officer on 01473 602602 prior to submitting your application if you have any questions.
