Now in its fourth year Wiltshire Council’s Funding Future Olympians and Paralympians Elite Athlete grant is open for applications.
As part of building on the success of 2012, the council, though its work with local businesses, is able to support rising sports stars by awarding grant funding. The funding will enable access to training and competitive opportunities as well as purchasing equipment and covering transport costs to regional and national events. Due to the success of the Legacy Business and Sports Gala dinner earlier this year, the council has been able to increase the available funding to allocate a total of £10,000 to support elite athletes with a grant of £1,000 each.
People of any age who are competing at a national level or above in any sport recognised by Sport England are invited to apply. The deadline for applications is Monday 26 January 2015 at 5pm. For more information, the criteria and the application form go to
