Sporting grants open to greater Belfast clubs

By Michael Bashford

Sport Northern Ireland has officially launched the Awards for Sport programme.

Awards for Sport is a small grants programme administered by Sport Northern Ireland, that aims to increase participation in sport and physical recreation, especially amongst under-represented groups and increase the number of athletes with improved sporting performance.

Open to governing bodies, sports clubs and community/voluntary organisations, the potential awards range from £1,000 to £10,000. This is also the first funding programme from Sport Northern Ireland which is available online, to increase efficiency and reduce environmental impact.

Information sessions have been planned to assist local groups to find out more details and dates and venues for these. Application and guidance notes can be found online at
