Volunteer Workforce


Applications for Round 1 of the Jersey Sport Travel/Volunteer Workforce Grants (2023) are now closed. Applications for Round 2 of this fund will reopen in May 2024.

The Volunteer Workforce Grant aims to support Jersey-based sport organisations to develop by providing financial assistance towards the costs associated with training, qualifications and upskilling opportunities for their local volunteer workforce. 

All applicants should be either a Jersey-based Sport Association or a Jersey-based Sport Club (If applying in this category the Club must confirm why there is no Association within their sport). 


Before starting your online application, your sport’s organisation will need to

  1. Log into our Members Area on this website (or register for an account on the same page if you don’t already have one)
  2. Apply for a Grant, by completing your details in our new grants management system, SmartSimple

Please ensure you read all of the following document to ensure your application is eligible and meets all the relevant criteria:

  • 2024 Volunteer Workforce Grant Prospectus, Terms and Conditions

Please also note, in order to complete the online application for the Volunteer Workforce Grant, your organisation will need to upload:

  • A copy of your Safeguarding Policy

The 2024 funding cycle will be split into two equal funding rounds where sports will apply for activities taking place between January – June in the first round and July – December in the second round. Sports organisations with upskilling activities taking place throughout the year may apply to both funding rounds.

Sports organisations who did not apply in 2023 can now register their details on our grants management system, SmartSimple, in preparation for their 2024 application.
