Foundation Scotland is administering the Clubs in Crisis Fund from Made by Sport, with grants up to £2,021 available.
Aimed at supporting sports clubs and youth organisations that deliver sport to address wider social outcomes, the Clubs in Crisis Fund is designed to help organisations recover from the pandemic’s impact, and enable them to continue their work to achieve social outcomes through sport.
These outcomes must fall into one or more of the following categories:
- Developing Life Skills
- Improving Mental Health
- Reducing Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour
- Developing Employability Skills
- Building Stronger Communities
Funding is unrestricted but should clearly meet the criteria of delivering sport for development for young people.
Whilst not a requirement, the programme would especially like to see grants used as leverage for match funding or used to secure the club or organisation’s long-term sustainability.
All funding for Round 3 must be spent by successful applicants by March 2022.
Previous applicants may reapply if they were awarded their last grant from this programme before Monday 30th August 2021 (Round 1). New applicants will take priority should the demand exceed the funding available. Please note, there have been some changes and clarifications since the first and second round, based on feedback from applicants across the UK. The application form has been shortened, and the original restrictions on income have been adapted, so applicants should make sure they have read all the information fully.
The deadline for applications to Round 3 is Monday 25th October, with decisions expected in December 2021.
