LGBTIQ+ Sports Welfare Fund
This welfare fund is set up to meet the needs of participants in LGBTIQ+ sports clubs, groups, programmes or initiatives, who require financial aid in order to maintain their participation in sport. We will also consider applications from LGBTIQ+ people without access to LGBTIQ+ specific provision, who also require financial aid in order to maintain their participation in sport. This could cover a variety of costs such as membership fees, equipment, or transportation.
Please note that this is not a financial grant; if successful, LEAP Sports will commit to make purchases or cover specific costs directly on your behalf. This is short term funding until the 31st May 2021 designed to support LGBTIQ+ communities in their COVID-19 response. Funding is allocated by LEAP Sports on a rolling basis, so apply sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
This pot, alongside the LGBTIQ+ Sports Provision Fund, is made possible through funding from the Scottish Government Communities Recovery Fund.
