Apply for funding

We have been involved with many coaching schemes across Stoke-on-Trent and beyond. We support the direct delivery of coaching projects, such as the scheme we deliver in partnership with Stoke-on-Trent College in local schools. We also make grants to sporting organisations and clubs to enable them to develop their programmes further via their own coaches.

Many individual young people have also been awarded grants to enable them to access specialist coaching to enable them to deliver their skills further.

So far over 4000 children have been supported through our various projects and grants.

Application forms are available from this website. If you are having difficulty downloading our forms, please contact us and we will be able to send you a hard copy in the post.

Please remember to read the advice for applicants before completing your application.

The grants sub-committee meets regularly (usually once per month) to discuss all applications received. Applicants are usually informed of the panel's decision within a few days.  This will be done by email, telephone call or post.

We have a limited amount of funding, so in some cases it will not be possible to grant the full amount requested. If this is the case with your application, we will contact you to explain which elements of your application we are able to fund.

Please note that current priorities mean that the committee are more likely to support coaching costs than cover the price of equipment and sports kit.

The panel's decision is final. If you are unsuccessful you will be given a reason for this. You can reapply at any time, although the outcome is unlikely to change.

Help to continue the vision of Sir Stan. Every penny goes to supporting young people in sports.
