Whether you’re applying for £50,000 from Sport England, or £250 from us at Tyne & Wear Sport, we want every organisation to succeed when submitting their funding bids, which is why we’ve provided some points to consider when applying for funding.

Top Tips when applying for funding;

  • Always read the eligibility criteria prior to starting an application

  • When completing an application always refer to the guidance notes

  • Speak to the people you want to engage; never assume they will want to take part in a specific sport or activity

  • Ensure you have all the relevant supporting documents available to submit with the application

  • Take into account timescales; how far in advance of the project starting do you need to submit the application

  • Ask for support from both internal colleagues and external organisations
