Welsh Athletics: Grants for Grassroots Athletics

Please note the closing date for receipt of applications to the Grants for Grassroots Athletics Fund is Friday 3rd March 2017

Applications must be addressed to; Welsh Athletics Ltd, Cardiff International Sports Stadium, Leckwith Road, Cardiff CF11 8AZ.

Envelopes must be marked with the heading ‘Grassroots Athletics Grants 2017’.  Alternatively email applications will be accepted at; office@welshathletics.org (please include; ‘Grassroots Athletics Grants 2017’ in the subject line).

Full details of the fund are available below and via the application form download.

The fund is available to clubs that are fully affiliated to Welsh Athletics. Please note that clubs that have previously been allocated funds through this grant system are NOT eligible for further funding until a ‘Project Evaluation Form’ has been fully completed and returned to Welsh Athletics.

Key features:

•             Grants up to a maximum of £1000 per application may be awarded.

•             Projects that encourage club development that look to increase membership will be given priority. In addition, clubs that have completed Welsh Athletics Clubmark Accreditation will be given higher priority.

•             Clubs are encouraged to source grants through other funding streams before making an application to this fund. For example; projects that could have otherwise have been funded through Sport Wales Community Chest grants (e.g. coach, volunteer, official’s education, new introductory junior activities) will only be considered by the panel if this funding stream has been utilised.

As such, clubs should first visit the funding page of the Welsh Athletics and explore the additional grant options available.
