Sports Grants and Funding Options

Funding for Clubs

The Torbay Sports Council aims to be able to offer each of its member clubs (Yes! You have to be a member!…but the annual subscription is only £3) whatever degree of assistance it needs in its efforts to apply for funding.  It recognises that some clubs will want to go it alone and may need an occasional word of advice, or a second opinion, whereas, at the other end of the spectrum, others will need help from the outset.  At the moment Torbay Sports Council have a Funding Panel of six which will enables them to offer to assist some applications, but, in the longer term, hope to increase the panel to twelve. At that point, they should be able to offer their services to any and every one of their member clubs.
Funding advice is free, but if you would like a Funding Guide to spearhead your application from beginning to end, they are now available.  They work on a No Win No Fee” basis, so you will owe them nothing until your funding has actually been received.
