NORTH-east sports clubs hit hard by the Covid pandemic can apply for funding through the Clubs in Crisis Fund.
Run by Made by Sport, the fund supports sports clubs and organisations delivering sport for development.
It aims to support sports clubs and youth organisations that deliver sport for development to recover from the pandemic's impact, and continue their work to achieve social outcomes through sport. Specifically, the fund is looking to support clubs and organisations that intentionally deliver wider 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. All funding for Round 3 must be spent by successful applicants by March 2022.
Grants of up to £2021 are available.
The next deadline is October 25.
