Sandwell MBC – Sports Grants – Deadline: 17th May 2019

Sports clubs and gifted local athletes can once again apply for special grants from Sandwell Council as part of its Cash for Sports Clubs or Gifted and Talented grant schemes.

The council has launched the fourth round of the Cash for Sports Clubs scheme, which was first launched in 2014 to give cash grants to sports clubs in the borough.

11 The council is also offering new grants to keen young people under its Gifted and Talented programme, which has helped many keen athletes to improve.

More than £70,000 has been handed out over the years to about 70 sports clubs, helping to fund new kits and equipment as well as coaching courses and improving the quality of sessions.

Clubs can apply for funding of up to £500 to help with kits and equipment and up to £1,500 to help grow membership and increase the number of Sandwell residents being active. There's also funding available for specialist coaching.

The scheme opens on Monday 11 March and closes on Friday 17 May at 5pm.
