Getting your projects off the ground

Before embarking on a project it is important to know realistically how much funding is likely to be available for your project.

SAPCA funding advisor, Karen Woolland of wctd ltd offers a special funding service to identify for organisations what funds your project could apply for.

Wctd ltd offers a special discount to organisations enquiring via the SAPCA website. Below shows an alphabetical list of funders for capital projects, this list covers England only. It does not cover local small trusts and local authority grants.

Sport Scotland and Sport Wales offer their own lists of funding/advice to their organisations.

Please note that funding opportunities are constantly changing. It is advisable to check the funder’s website direct for the most up to date information.
