Sporting Grants 2021-22
The Active Schools & Community Sport service is responsible on behalf of West Lothian Council for the administration of grant assistance to sport.
COVID-19's impact on community sport has been serious, but this situation can also be viewed as an opportunity for clubs and organisations to consider new projects. Successful applications will be those that demonstrate a targeted approach to one or more of the following areas:
- Collaborative working with other partners e.g. clubs, schools, CSHs
- Development of volunteers and young leaders
- Enabling the inactive to become more active
- Planning, Governance and Profile
- Tackling Inequalities
Applications must be linked to a Club, CSH or Club Partnership development plan that details costs, delivery model and projected impacts. If successful, a follow-up report to show how you have applied the Sporting Grant will be required.
Only Active Assured Accredited Clubs, recognised CSHs and Club Partnerships can apply to the Sporting Grants scheme.
For more detailed information on the criteria please read the following document carefully.
For further information please contact Active West Lothian or email your dedicated Community Sport Coordinator if known.
