SUPPORTIN SPORT
FUND

Applications open: 1 - 31 May 2024

Jersey Sport are delighted to launch a NEW pilot fund in 2024 with thanks and gratitude to legacy monies left in the will of Valerie Guy.

Our desire is to invest this money directly back into local sport and support the island’s sports organisations to build safe and sustainable sport offers which allow more islanders to GET INVOLVED in local sport. 

The SUPPORTIN SPORT Fund aims to support Jersey-based sport organisations by activating plans, aligning resources, implementing change and signalling direction to continue inspiring an active Jersey. This new fund has absorbed the Volunteer Workforce Grant, allowing sports organisations to apply for financial assistance towards the costs associated with workforce training, qualifications and upskilling through one central fund.

We’re hosting an informal networking event to celebrate the launch of the SUPPORTIN SPORT Fund on Wednesday 1 May 2024, from 18:00-19:30 at Highlands College.
