This is a fantastic opportunity for clubs within Northern Ireland to avail of some much needed funding. For help with completing applications, or providing templates for a constitution or child protection policy please contact [email protected] or 028 90383811. I have attached the guidance notes regarding the application process, however there is a wealth of information available on the SportNI website (address listed above).
I strongly urge that clubs attend the information sessions to get as much knowledge as possible regarding the application process. There is huge demand all ready for this programme so attending one of these sessions may help you to get a clearer idea of what SportNI are looking for when assessing your application.
