Clubs & Sport Development

Sport for Change Grants

The Sport Development Team, in partnership with the Gannochy Trust is excited to bring this funding opportunity to our PACES clubs and Community Sport Hubs for a third year.  With up to £1000 per project available, the purpose of the funding is to start, or continue projects, that enable an inclusive and welcoming environment for all, alongside achieving a wider social outcome. 

Congratulations to all of the clubs chosen for a Sport for Change Grant, awarded in March 2024.  We were particularly interested in funding projects that engage adult women in sports participation, coaching and/or volunteering.  This is because our data captured from PACES clubs across Perth & Kinross shows that women's participation in sport as well as in sports coaching positions, compared to men, is at a much lower level.  We are delighted so many clubs have chosen to focus on this.
