Waterford Sports Partnership - April 2011

Sport Club Participation Grant – OPEN!

In order to increase participation levels for three target groups, Waterford Sports Partnership is launching a NEW Sports Club Participation Grant Scheme. The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 4pm on Wednesday, 18th May 2011. This small scale grant scheme aims to increase participation and exercise opportunities for Youth, Disability and those aged over 35 years, whilst also increasing club membership. The grant scheme is open to clubs who are either affiliated to an Irish Sports Council recognised National Governing Body e.g. GAA, FAI etc. or a recognised Disability Organisation.

Waterford Sports Partnership wants to support clubs keen to increase their membership base with well thought out and innovative programmes. Whilst clubs may apply for grant aid for equipment purchase, referees fees etc, applications that project a positive impact on participation levels for the target groups and, more importantly demonstrate sustainability within the club will have a better chance of being awarded funding. We look forward to receiving applications which can make a positive impact on the target groups identified.

Criteria & Application Forms for the Sports Club Participation Grant are available at www.waterfordsportspartnership.ie or by contacting Peter Jones (058 21191) or Pauline Cunningham (051 849855).

The closing date for receipt of applications is Wednesday 18th May 2011 at 4pm.
