Community Sports Fund 2014‏

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Community Sports Fund is now open for clubs and organisations to apply for.

The Community Sports Fund (CSF) is a grant aid scheme aimed at helping local sports clubs and organisations by supporting projects that encourage additional people to get involved in sport, or retain those who would otherwise cease to be involved.

Awards will be made to successful applicants to help with costs such as coaching fees, facility hire, equipment costs and publicity costs. This must be spent within 12 months of the project start date (which must not be before October 2014). We welcome applications that help the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people of any age to enjoy the benefits that participating in sport can bring.

Applications are open to all clubs, organisations and county associations to apply for a maximum of £1500 (Clubmark clubs) and £1000 (non-Clubmark). The minimum amount to be applied for is £500. Projects need to show how they will increase and / or sustain participation.

More information about CSF will be available via the web-link below including guidelines, an on-line application form, and a FAQ sheet:

The deadline for applications is 22 July 2014.
