Sport funding made easy

More information on Amanda Bate's new venture (as mentioned last week) has come out.

Sport Support will advise and guide sports clubs through the maze of forms and reports that surround (and frequently prevent access to) grants that are supposed to be available to sports clubs and teams like ours.

We've done reasonably well in this area in the past, but much of that has been due to Amanda pointing the way. Often its not so much that the application is daunting (though it frequently is), its more that you are unaware that the grant exists at all, or that you are eligible. Grant making bodies frequently use a specialised branch of the English language where words have subtly different meanings so when you look at it you think "that can't possibly apply to girls' rugby" when it turns out that they are desparate to hand over some cash.

Amanda's new company officially starts on 1st November - but apparently she is taking bookings already (including this club, if they follow my suggestion). A great deal of grant money actually goes unspent, so there is plenty of potential business out there.
