Sports Traider – STEP Fund

The Sports Traider partnership is pleased to announce the latest round of community funding available via our STEP (Sports Traider Encouraging Participation) programme.

Sports Traider is a charity dedicated to supporting the promotion of physical activities in the community with particular focus on supporting individuals who find it difficult to access opportunities to do so.

Income from our local store in Freshney Place is put to use by giving back to the local community.

Applications are welcomed from current groups/teams or anyone seeking support to kick start a new group/team in the local area.

If you have a group or would like support to start a new one please complete our application form attached.

Funding can be supplied to support – new equipment, new clothing, facility hire, teaching. Anything innovative is encouraged.

We are particularly keen to support groups active in the East Marsh, West Marsh, South Ward, Sidney Sussex, Hainton & Heneage, but will accept applications from across N.E Lincolnshire.

Applications open Monday 8th November 2021.

Applications close on Tuesday 30th November 2021 at 2359hrs.

A funding panel will assess the applications the first week of December.

Applications should try to remain within a £500 budget.
