We are delighted to announce the next round of the Modernisation Grant is now open for applications. The Modernisation Grant will give our clubs a boost to support activities that will increase engagement and develop infrastructure & workforce. Over the years we have been proud to support applications that are leading the way via innovative projects that focus on modernising and developing clubs across Wales.
We welcome applications from our affiliated clubs (up to £2000), Regional Athletics Councils and Schools Districts (up to £1000). Applications that are aligned to the strategy for the sport ‘A vision for Athletics in Wales 2019-2026’, have a focus around increasing engagement and growth of the club, are encouraged and will be held with higher priority.
Applicants can get in touch with their local Club Development Officer for advice on completing the application process or for further guidance on what will be funded. To further support clubs in the application process, we will be hosting a Funding Webinar on Wednesday 17th May at 6.30pm.
The webinar will look at funding opportunities for affiliated clubs and social running groups across Wales. The session will explore top tips for writing an application bid for funding.
The first half of the session will be open to all affiliated clubs and groups, focusing on the Be Active Fund, the second half of the session will be aimed only at affiliated clubs looking at the Welsh Athletics Modernisation Grant 2023. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
