Small Grants Scheme

North West Leicestershire Local Sports Alliance is offering an opportunity for its partners and associated organisations to submit a funding proposal for appropriate projects in the North West Leicestershire. Grants will be funded through the North West Leicestershire Sport and Physical Activity Commissioning plan Small Grant Scheme 2017/18.

The North West Leicestershire Sport and Physical Activity Commissioning plan Small Grant Scheme 2017/18 is available to fund projects throughout the District of North West Leicestershire that meet the following general objective:

"Improve the health and wellbeing of people in North West Leicestershire, and reduce health inequalities experienced by some social groups or people living in geographical areas of greater social need".

The criteria of this funding is for projects that are targeting inactive young people and older persons 70+year, where possible, sustainability of projects should be considered a priority. However, consideration will also be given to "one off" projects.

There of two amounts available through the funding pot £250 and £500 limit on each proposal is £250 but I would urge you to still submit your proposal if the amount is greater than this. This is just in case we can meet the funding request. If you have any questions regarding this please contact me to discuss.

The deadline for the receipt of proposals is 5.00pm Friday 30th June 2017 and the project is time limited as funds need to be spent by March 31st 2018. Funded projects will require evaluation and a template for this will be provided in due course.
