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.
