Sandwell Cash for Sports Clubs – Round 5 COVID-19 Emergency Funding
29 Apr 2020 by Libby Mahoney
Sandwell Council understand that sports clubs, like every other sector, may now find themselves experiencing financial difficulties. Therefore, due to the current circumstances we are re-profiling the Cash for Sports Clubs grant scheme this year to make grants quickly available for local Sports Clubs to support you with any immediate or urgent financial issues.
You can apply for up to £1,000 to support with any immediate losses or issues, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Sandwell Council wants to help you to ensure that our sports clubs are still with us when this crisis is over. You may want to apply for funds to support the sustainability of your club during this time, e.g. training and qualifications, if they are currently available from your NGB.
They are also aware of a number of other schemes to support sports clubs during this crisis. The Sport England Community Emergency Fund has recently been created, and Sandwell Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) are also offering support. If you require any further information or support with accessing these funds, please contact the Council’s Sport & Leisure team at Sandwell_SportsClubs@sandwell.gov.uk
We are also planning on setting up some virtual meetings and Webinars so that clubs can come together to share challenges and solutions to issues faced. We can invite colleagues from local organisations that may be able to provide help and support.

Sports Clubs Questionnaire
The questionnaire seeks to understand the difficulties you may currently be experiencing, that might require a greater extent of financial support than we can provide. Council officers will follow this up by getting in touch with you to provide you with advice and support.
