Carlisle City Council and Cumbria County Council are working with Active Cumbria to support Carlisle community based sports groups through this difficult period. Many groups have had a tough time in running regular activities as a result of restriction measures to manage the virus and this hardship fund is aimed at supporting these groups to survive through this challenging period.
The hardship fund is aimed at not for profit sporting organisations that have reducing financial resources resulting in hardship and possible closure.
This is a very limited small grant pot and we are not able to support all groups that apply, so we will look to prioritise groups that have demonstrated that this funding would be used to maximise the continuation of the sports club. This might include supporting matched funding, or bridging a small gap in finances through temporary reduced income. Priority will be given to organisations that are at risk of closure as a result of the pandemic, and who have not been able to receive Government grants.
All grant applications should meet the General Criteria attached and applicants should use the application form included in this pack.
If you want more information about applying or to talk about your application form please do get in touch with:
