Applications are being invited for City of York Council’s sport and active leisure grants.
The funding is to make clubs more accessible, offer more sports options and further improve safety and wellbeing standards.
There are two pots of money:
- the small grants fund with funding of up to £500
- the hub club grants, which will award a max of £1,000 to five successful applicants per year.
Both funds are open for applications before the deadline of 31 May. Payments to successful applicants will be made in June.
To support club members’ wellbeing, all successful applicants must complete mental health awareness training. They will be given a small award to undertake the scheme.
Councillor Darryl Smalley, executive member for culture, leisure and communities, said: “These grants will be able to help clubs improve their community engagement and support their members’ health and wellbeing.
“There are so many brilliant sports and leisure groups across the city who I’m sure would be able to make great use of this funding.”
