  • 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, a 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.
