The Grant Application Service has been in place for 12 months and in its first year has helped a number of clubs in the Western League.
The Service provides advice and guidance to clubs who are looking to update their infrastructure as well as hands on management where required.
The Service can provide advice on all aspects of grant funding, including planning, finding suppliers and completion of all necessary documents to run your project or prepare documents for the Football Association or other lottery funds.
There is no cost at the initial stage and where a more hands on approach is required in general the costs are low, as costs can be claimed back from the grant received.
If you would like to discuss your club’s infrastructure needs and funding, please call Steve Nicholls on 07454320934
