Salisbury 2020 Coach Bursary
Following the latest government recommendations and restrictions on organised group activity, the Salisbury 2020: Project20 and Club Grant programmes will be temporarily suspended with immediate effect. Thank you to those individuals and clubs who have already submitted applications. These will be considered and further communication will follow shortly to applicants. The situation will continue to be monitored and the programmes relaunched for an extended period when deemed safe to do so in line with government advice.
Salisbury 2020: City on the move is a year-long programme of events and activities marking the 800th anniversary of the laying of Salisbury Cathedral’s first foundation stone and the development of Salisbury.
As part of our work to support the festival, we are looking to develop a legacy of 20 new coaches who can provide more opportunities for people to get active.
Who can apply?
- Any individual who coaches on a voluntary basis and wishes to achieve a UKCC Level 1, 2 or 3 qualification (applications to host, facilitate and/or be an activator in sport will also be considered).
- All applicants must be a resident in Salisbury and/or will be using their qualification within the local area. Applications are encouraged from individuals who are from one or more of the following groups; or who are delivering sport to one of the following groups (and/or individuals/groups that are in receipt of certain benefits):
- Black and minority ethnic groups
- 50+ offer
The maximum grant that can be applied for is £150 (not to include transport or accommodation). In return for the grant we ask that you deliver 5 x 1 hour voluntary sessions in a curriculum, extra-curricular, club and/or community setting.
The bursary scheme has been created in partnership between WASP & Salisbury City Council. For further information on the bursary scheme please contact Alan Low, Workforce Project Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
