 Cash4Clubs grant approved by the Sported Foundation

February 2024

We are delighted to have been awarded a grant from the Cash4Clubs programme, delivered in partnership with Sported. The Cash4Clubs programme offers grants to community and voluntary sports groups across the UK and Ireland, delivering activities for a social purpose to under-represented communities. Sported is a charity which delivers expertise, resources and vital support to clubs and groups that use sport and physical activity to make a positive impact on young people – and on our communities – throughout the UK.

This grant will be used to continue our work with SCOREScotland achieving the following Cash4Clubs outcomes:

  • Continue our existing services, this grant will help our sustainability at a difficult time.
  • Community cohesion, to have a broader social impact on our local community, e.g. tackling crime and anti-social behaviour, reducing loneliness, supporting mental health and well-being.

The project will build on our work funded by Comic Relief #shiftthepower and facilitated by ECY Teachers Thara Wicramsinghe and Laura Wilson.
