SwansAid is back
Applications for the Swans grant-giving pot, SwansAid, are now officially open for another round of grant-giving.
SwansAid aims to financially support clubs, charities, organisations or projects that encourage young people, or those with disabilities, to get involved with sport, and the Community Trust are now accepting applications until November 30, 2018.
Made up of two separate categories, the autumn round of funding will award the following:
- Two large grants of up to £5,000
- Three small grants of up to £2,000.
Since its introduction in September 2013, SwansAid has made numerous grants totalling over £175,000 to an array of organisations and has funded everything from 3G pitches to coaching qualifications.
“This is a great opportunity for local charities and organisations that support young people and disabled people to obtain much-needed funds to enhance their offerings and help even more people,” said head of the Community Trust Helen Elton.
“In the past we’ve granted money to a broad range of organisations from football clubs to parent teacher associations, and from gymnastic and circus clubs to disability football leagues, so no matter what physical activity it is that your project delivers, we urge you to check your eligibility and apply."
If your group operates within Swansea, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire or Carmarthenshire and you work with children, young people or those with a disability, then you may be eligible to apply.
