Athlete Support

Individual Sports Grants

A limited amount of funding has become available to open the Individual Sports Grants to applications from Gateshead residents who have achieved the appropriate competitive standards within their chosen sport. 

Appropriate level competition opportunities for the majority were severely limited in 2020 due to pandemic restrictions.  Applications will therefore be open to competitions from April 2019 provided that an athlete has not already been awarded a grant through this scheme for the performance.  We are unable to fund the same performance twice. 

Grants will be issued on a first come, first served basis.  The final date for applications to be received is 1.00pm on Thursday 19th March 2021. 

Please ensure you read the guidance notes on the application form for full details of eligibility.  Icon for pdf Athlete support application 2021 [248.16KB]

Making Sport Accessible Fund

A limited amount of funding has become available to open a Making Sport Accessible Fund to applications from Gateshead-based voluntary sports clubs. 

Clubs are invited to apply for a grant of £500 that is aimed at ensuring identified members, who are residents of Gateshead, have the opportunity to access or continue participating in their chosen sport, where otherwise financial issues may limit their opportunities.  Clubs and coaches know their members well and so are best placed to make judgements and allocate the funding according to the greatest need. 

The final date for applications to be received is Sunday 21st March 2021. 

Please ensure you read the guidance notes on the application form for full details of eligibility.  Icon for pdf Making sport accessible fund application form [365.77KB]
