Persimmon Healthy Communities 2017, deadline 31 December 2017

8 June 2017

Persimmon Healthy Communities is a new programme that aims to support amateur sport for young people aged 21 and under in England, Wales and Scotland. Registered charities, clubs and schools that provide sports training and sports opportunities can apply.

Small grants for sports kit

The majority of awards will be grants of £750 and the funder's main objective is for people to use the £750 to purchase sports kit. "However, it may be that you don’t need kit and therefore we will consider other entries if you would like to purchase equipment or spend the money on your facilities." 30 donations of £750 will be made every month from May to December 2017.

Option to enter a national competition

"In January 2018 our 30 businesses will choose one entry to go forward into our national competition.

"The national prize is a massive £200,000 for you, your club or team. And we’re not stopping there. We also have two runners up prizes of £50,000 each and 27 finalist awards of £5,000 each."

The competition has several stages and culminates in a national online vote in April 2018.
