Funding Opportunities

Scottish Sports Association have shared some funding opportunities which may be of use to our Clubs: 


Postcode Community Trust

Postcode Community Trust was established in 2014 and focuses on initiatives that benefit communities through grass-roots sports, arts, recreation and wellbeing programmes which improve a community's physical and mental health. The application process for Postcode Community Trust's grants programme is very simple. All you need to do is complete an expression of interest form. If successful after this stage, you will be invited to fill in a full application form on-line.  Read more here.


Postcode Dream Fund

The Dream Fund is now open for applications. Charities can apply through our online application form at the link below. Please read the guidance notes thoroughly before applying. The deadline for stage one applications is August 22nd. The Dream Fund gives organisations the chance to deliver the project they have always dreamed of, but never had the opportunity to bring to life. We are asking charitable organisations across Great Britain to think big, be ambitious and collaborate with other not-for-profit partners to deliver their dream project. The Dream Fund allows charities to apply for up to £1,000,000 to deliver their ‘dream’ project in Great Britain (Scotland, England or Wales) in 2018-2020. There is a total award fund of £3,000,000.

The Big Lottery Fund

Are you looking for up to £10,000 in National Lottery funding to help you get a great idea moving? Then look no further.  National Lottery Awards for All Scotland is here and if you are looking for as little as £300 or as much as £10,000 for a great community based project then it is for you. If it sounds familiar then that is because National Lottery Awards For All Scotland is the new name for Awards For All Scotland. We’re still here to support great community, arts and sports projects across the country. Read more here.


The Weir Charitable Trust

Applications are now open for their second round of 2017 funding, deadline 31st August . The Weir Charitable Trust aims to support Scottish-based community groups and small charities to provide services across Scotland to help the Scottish community.
