GrantsDún Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership have announced the awarding of 21 grants to 18 local clubs totalling over €25,000 under the Club Participation Grants Scheme 2020. The purpose of this grant scheme is to provide assistance to sports clubs/organisations based in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown to develop or expand targeted participation initiatives and the provision of training for volunteers/coaches.

The grants will enable the successful clubs to use the funding in the following areas; Disability Inclusion Participation Initiatives, Women in Sport Participation Initiatives or Volunteer Training and Development. Funding for this grants scheme is provided through Sport Ireland and is intended to support those clubs not already in receipt of significant core and/or additional funding.

Shane Mc Ardle stated “We’re delighted that we are able to award these grants to our clubs and help strengthen areas within the club that support and upskill our volunteers, coaches and communities within sport. Our clubs have been hard hit this year and more than ever need our support to continue their great work in local communities. Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership are delighted that are able to help facilitate that.”

Clubs have been notified and can expect to receive the grant payments before Christmas with the view to roll out their grant aided initiatives throughout 2021.
