Applications for the 2018 Swimathon Foundation Community Grants Scheme are open.

The scheme offers funding to groups and individuals who go above and beyond to encourage people in their local community to enjoy the water.

The Grants are available to a wide range of groups, including, but not limited to:

  • Community groups
  • Swimming clubs
  • Senior groups
  • Youth groups
  • Sports clubs
  • Disability charities
  • Healthy living groups

Using a simple online form, applicants are encouraged to apply for a grant between £500 and £2,500. N.B. Grants will only be awarded to organisations supported by pools that are participating in Swimathon.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 19 March 2018.

You can find the application form along with the grant criteria and case studies at www.swimathonfoundation.org
