Advice to applicants

In the past we have made grants to support the purchase of equipment.

The emphasis our work has now shifted even further towards coaching and it is very unlikley that we will fund the purchase of equipment.

Therefore we urge that all new applications should have a coaching focus.

In addition, applications should also meet the following criteria:

  • Applicants must be under 21 but there is no upper age limit for coaches.
  • Individual applications should be made by (or on behalf of) people under the age of 21
  • Organisations or clubs should cater for young people under the age of 21
  • At least 12 months should have passed since a previous, successful application

We hope that all successful applicants would allow us to share their success and the part that Sir Sir Stanley Matthews Coaching Foundation has played in this.
