Funding help for sporting talent

Posted onPosted on 18th Sep

Budding local Olympians and Paralympians are being encouraged to apply for the latest round of Nottinghamshire County Council funding to help propel them even further in their chosen sport.

A new round of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Talented Athletes Fund is open until 14th October, offering grants of up to £400 for Nottinghamshire athletes who have represented their country at national athletic events in the last year.

The Talented Athletes Fund is part of the council’s Local Improvement Scheme, which offers financial help and support to local communities.

Grants are available to pay for travel, training, accommodation, competition and coaching fees and kit costs. Last year 121 of budding sports stars benefitted from more than £21,000 worth in sports grants last year.
