There are a number of funding and scholarship opportunities for local athletes and sporting organisations
The Wheelhouse Project
The Wheelhouse website enables community groups and individual athletes to easily access a range of funding opportunities by using a search engine to narrow down the funder that is best suited to funding their project or purpose. Using this method ensures you are dealing with local funders, funders who are aligned to your mission and funders who may be able to support you with the amount you require to achieve your goal.
The Wheelhouse is is an exciting initiative resulting in a collaboration between several organisations committed to the better coordination of training educational opportunities and the provision of resources for community groups. Therefore, the Wheelhouse is much more that a funding hub but also provides support to clubs and organisations around upskilling, mentoring, research and more.
