SportsAid and Backing The Best Funding Opportunities

SportsAid helps young, unfunded athletes to overcome one of their greatest barriers to success - the financial challenge of trying to become Britain’s next generation of Olympians, Paralympians and world champions. The charity helps over 1,000 athletes across more than 60 sports each year, the majority aged 12 to 18, by providing them with an average award of £1,000.

The Backing The Best programme - supports athletes with up to £5000 per annum for athletes facing significant financial hardship, to help them overcome the barriers which could prevent them from realising their potential. 

If you are interested in applying for these funding opportunities please check out the application forms and selection policies below for more information on eligibility requirements. 

The deadline for applications is 6 December 2020
