The Lewisham sports small grants fund is open

Lewisham Council writes:

The Lewisham sports small grant scheme is available to help individuals and sports clubs within Lewisham grow and excel. Established clubs can also be awarded grants to help them focus on their delivery and continue to play a part in training and encouraging sports stars for the future.

Three funding streams are available. The ‘Grow’ stream is available to teams or organisations keen to start a new club or increase membership within a section of an existing club. The ‘Excel’ stream offers bursaries of up to £500 to individuals or teams competing at regional level or higher. The bursary can be used towards costs associated with becoming an elite performer. The third stream is ‘Sustain’ and is available to established clubs who are keen to maintain their sports delivery but may need help with operational costs.

Closing date for applications is 14 January 2013. Full details are available at
