Grants for sports projects

Published: 27/10/2014

Sport Flintshire is encouraging local sports clubs and community groups to apply for financial assistance from the Sport Wales Community Chest Grant for community sports projects. Up to £1500 is available to organisations to encourage people to become more active, more often. To meet the application criteria an organisation must deliver sports or physical activity and have a bank account. Grants can be used for coaching education, first aid and safeguarding workshops; new kit and equipment for new teams; facility hire for new teams and instructor or coaching costs. Councillor Kevin Jones, Cabinet Member for Waste Strategy, Public Protection and Leisure said: “With local panels deciding local needs, Community Chest has been and continues to be a huge success. “We would like to see more community clubs and organisations taking advantage of the financial support that is available to them with the aim of improving and increasing provision for sport and physical activity in Flintshire.” Organisations could be eligible for an additional £1500 if a project is specifically aimed at women and girls, tackles inequality or is a response to additional participation generated by the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
