The Active Schools & Community Sport service is responsible on behalf of West Lothian Council for the administration of grant assistance to sport. COVID-19 has had a major impact across many sectors of life including sport and consequently, the sporting grant scheme has been reviewed for 2020-21.

COVID-19's impact on community sport has been serious, but this situation can also be viewed as an opportunity for clubs and organisations to consider new projects. Successful applications will be those that demonstrate a targeted approach to one or more of the following areas:  

  • Collaborative working with other partners e.g. clubs, schools, CSHs  
  • Development of volunteers and young leaders  
  • Enabling the inactive to become more active  
  • Planning, Governance and Profile    
  • Tackling Inequalities     

Applications must be linked to a Club, CSH or Club Partnership development plan that details costs, delivery model and projected impacts. If successful, a follow-up report to show how you have applied the Sporting Grant will be required.

Only Active Assured Accredited Clubs, recognised CSHs and Club Partnerships can apply to the Sporting Grants scheme.
