Set4Success is a process being led by the Horsham Rotary Club and supported by local organisations such as Horsham District Council, businesses, schools and sports clubs to raise funds for distribution to young talented sports people.
Horsham District Council Individual Grants
The Council supports Horsham District residents aged 21 or under who represent their sporting or artistic field at national or international level. An individual may apply for a grant to help pay towards their travelling or “out of pocket” expenses. Individuals who are undertaking charitable work overseas for a recognised organisation may also be eligible for support.
Any grants awarded will not exceed £100 and applicants cannot apply more than once every two years.
1) Applicants are only eligible if their parents hold a Leisure Access Card.
2) Sporting or artistic applicants must be amateurs; that is their chosen field of sporting or artistic excellence should not also be their main or sole means of generating personal income.
SportsAid athletes are the UK's brightest prospects from more than 60 sports. Typically age 12 to 18, they receive no other funding. This means they rely heavily on their parents for support. Not just financially but also for their transport, kit, nutrition and much, much more!
The really amazing thing about this is that many are already representing Great Britain and if they can continue doing so, have the potential to go on and inspire the nation, as we saw so brilliantly during London 2012.
Without SportsAid, many of these athletes would face a hard choice over whether to continue training and competing. They already spend, on average, £6,000 a year on their sport and 100% of them say SportsAid's support is helpful or even essential.
Talented Athlete Support Scheme (TASS)
Sport England TASS is a Government funded programme that represents a unique partnership between talented young student-athletes, National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGB’s) and the Higher (University) and Further (College/School) Education sectors.
TASS aims to provide the opportunity for young athletes to balance academic life with training and competition as a talented athlete without having to make the hard decision between the two.
