Funding for Families

Cambridge City Council, in partnership with The Leys School Community Fund, has announced the 1st April 2022 launch of a new grassroots grant aid programme.

Lower-income families can apply for up to £250 per year to enable their child/ren (aged 4 – 16 years) to participate in formalised sport or a physical activity of their choice, within Cambridge.

The grant will be open throughout the year and is available for City residents. All details including the application form and eligibility criteria can be found on their website:

For information:

  • The grant is for grassroots participation only, not elite performance.
  • Funding can be toward sustaining participation at a club if financial circumstances have changed.
  • Funding can be towards subs, weekly fees, equipment or clothing.

Please share this information and spread the word to families who might benefit.
