Support for individuals throughout Great Britain with the aim of helping disadvantaged young people (under the age of 16) to participate, to the best of their ability, in the sport of their choice, irrespective of their social circumstances, culture or ethnicity.
No minimum or maximum level of grant is specified.
Applications may be submitted at any time.
A grant will only be considered if the individual is unable to raise the necessary finances required as a result of their disadvantaged circumstances. Applicants will need to show that circumstances are such that they are unable to raise the finance necessary through any other means.
The following are eligible for funding:
- Shirts, shorts, swimwear and footwear appropriate to the applicant’s sport.
- Dress standards – a number of sports require a certain dress standard. The Foundation recognises this and treats each application on its merits.
- Personal items of equipment appropriate to the applicant’s sport.
As each different sport has individual needs, these are guidelines only. Applicants should contact the Foundation for advice on individual applications.
