SwansAid applications now open
SwansAid is back for another round of grant giving!
With applications now open, organisations, charities and clubs that support and encourage children, young people or those with disabilities to get involved in sport, are urged to apply if they need funding to help their project.
Since its introduction in September 2013, the Club’s grant giving pot has made grants totalling over £100,000 to an array of organisations and applications are now open until April 1st 2017 when the Swans take on Middlesbrough.
From trampolining to surfing, from cricket to cycling and from PTAs to football, SwansAid funds have been awarded to a variety of sports and a range of different projects and yours could be next.
Twice a season, SwansAid makes grants and we have now entered the second, Spring round of funding with applications open for three separate categories:
•One large grants of up to £10,000
•Five small grants of up to £2,000
•Ten sets of kit to sports organisations
“This is a great opportunity for local charities and organisations that support the young and the disabled in sport, to obtain much needed funds to enhance their offerings and help even more people,” said Head of the Community Trust, Linden Jones.
“In the past we’ve granted money to a broad range of organisations from football clubs to PTAs, and from gymnastic and circus clubs to disability leagues, so no matter what sport it is your project delivers, we urge you to check your eligibility and apply,” he added.
So if your group operates within Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, and you work with children, young people or disabled people, then you may be eligible to apply.
Please not that if you have previously been awarded SwansAid funds, please wait three years before applying again.
