Support for local groups and Community Sport Providers

Erewash Borough Council Sport and Health Development Team strive to support local community groups and clubs in a variety of ways. We appreciate grant funding is a challenge for most groups and we are committed to supporting groups in this area. As a service we don’t have funds to support clubs directly but we can offer the following:

- Regular updates on local, regional and national funding opportunities;
- Dedicated staff to support groups with funding applications;
- Networking opportunities, promoting shared resources;
- Information regarding local and national campaigns that groups can take advantage of;
- Support in accessing relevant training for staff and volunteers.

For more information please contact Kevin Hatton, Sport and Physical Activity Coordinator: or 0115 907 2244 ext. 3961.
