About the Sport Islington Grant Fund
The grant aid is seeking to encourage and develop participation in sport at all levels and by all sections of the community. It is important that applications highlight the benefits to the community, particularly how it will increase participation and prove why it needs financial assistance.
Clubs and organisations can now apply for up to £1000, increased from £500, to run sports activities in Islington. If the organisations have Clubmark or other relevant accreditation, then they can now apply for up to £1500. For athletes, who are Islington residents, competing at regional level and above can apply for a grant up to £500. Go to our funds page to apply now.
