Sport Northern Ireland currently has funding opportunities for schools. This is a great opportunity to make links with local schools and develop an after school’s paddlesport programme. Many local schools have already expressed an interest in working with clubs, and this will allow funding for various activities.
Active Schools is a small grants programme developed, funded and administered by Sport Northern Ireland that aims to assist projects that enable the delivery of new/sustained opportunities for children and young people to participate in 2 hours of extra-curricular sports and physical recreation. Sport Northern Ireland will prioritise applications from schools based in areas of greatest need.
This programme is open to Primary, Post Primary and Special Schools registered with the Northern Ireland Department of Education. The focus of this programme will be targeted towards those in year 5 upwards.
If you have a school that you already have a link with, or would like to make a link with, then please get in touch with the principal and encourage them to apply for the funding, so that you may begin to develop your programme. All applications must be submitted no later than 12.00 noon on Friday 4 October 2013. All projects must take place and be fully invoiced on/before Monday 31st March 2014.
If you have any questions or need some help in making links with schools and developing programmes, please get in contact with E: firstname.lastname@example.org
