Young athletes can apply for Council funding now

Young people and community groups in Hackney can apply for funding to support sports development through the Hackney Youth Sports Fund.

The fund awards grants to talented young athletes aged 9-23 to help with the costs of training and competing in their chosen sport.

Since it began in 2007, Hackney Council’s Youth Sports Fund has granted over £200,000 towards the development of young athletes.

The second round of this year’s fund is now open for applications, with grants of up to £500 available for those competing at grassroots to national level. It closes on 22 January 2018.
