Three new grant opportunities are available for sports related activities, please see below:

  • Active Halls

Our new programme Active Halls has launched for instructors who need funding and support re-starting existing classes or starting new sessions, when restrictions are lifted on 17th May. SASP have received funding from Somerset Community Foundation to encourage physical activity providers for mid/older aged people to re-open in our village and community halls.  We will offer grants (of up to £500) to support the reduced income they may make through Covid-19 restrictions such as reduced class numbers due to social distancing and/or confidence issues of their participants.  You can find out more, including the online application form and criteria by visiting www.sasp.co.uk/active-halls

Deadline for applications is 31st May.


  • Clubs in Crisis Grant Aid & Information Evening

A great and easy opportunity for sports clubs and community organisations to apply for £2,021 to help their club or community group in Somerset, North Somerset, BANES, City of Bristol or South Gloucestershire reopen and provide positive sporting activities to young people. SASP and Wesport are hosting a webinar to take people through this easy process and answer any questions on Thursday 6th May at 6.30pm with Somerset Community Foundation on zoom.
