Grant Aid Scheme Rules

Grant Aid Scheme Application

The objective of the Leighton Linslade and District Sports Council is to assist with and promote the development of sport, sportsmen and sportswomen in Leighton Linslade and the neighbouring districts.

There are a number of different ways in which it can achieve this, one of which is by giving financial assistance to sports organisations, clubs and individuals through its grant aid scheme. The overriding aim of the scheme is to provide help where it is most needed or where there may be hardship or special needs.

The Council will not normally make grants for capital projects but may, where justified in the view of the Council, support applications for capital grant aid made to other appropriate bodies.

Full rules on the grants can be found in the attached file. Application forms can be downloaded from above and sent to the council via your club representative or via e mail to leightonlinsaldesports@gmail.com
