Support for 3rd Sector Organisations

Knowing that many organisations and individuals in the sport & physical activity sector are facing challenging times as a result of COVID-19, we want to highlight the support available for the local organisations that aim to make a different to communities. GBA has created this support page to give you ideas and access to tools, resources and funding opportunities which will help you to work through these strange and challenging times, and into the "new normal".

This page will evolve as we post new opportunities and resources, but please get in contact with any questions or feedback.
