Grassroots sports clubs and organisations can request kit and equipment from the Postcode Community Trust community sports programme. The programme focuses on specific themes and target groups of individuals which have traditionally lower levels of participation in team sports.
Applications are currently open for charities and community groups who wish to establish sports teams specifically for those with mental health difficulties. This may cover a variety of illnesses such as depression, anxiety, dementia and/or Alzheimer’s, post-traumatic stress disorder and other recognised conditions – though this is not an exhaustive list.
This is not a cash grant programme – applicants can request one package from a set list of kit and equipment for the following team sports:
- Football (including 11s and 6-a-side)
- Bowls (including crown green and flat bowls)
