Ulster Hockey is delighted to announce that Sport NI and the Department for Communities has launched a £25 million Sports Sustainability fund.
The purpose of this Sports Sustainability Fund is to help address the economic consequences of the COVID 19 health pandemic effecting the sports sector. It will provide the financial interventions needed to stabilise and sustain sports core governing bodies of sport; enabling them to withstand the worst impacts of Covid19, specifically it will:
- Minimise the financial stress on the sports sector due to lost income as a result of COVID-19 lockdown and ongoing restrictions so as to sustain the sector.
- Enable Governing Bodies and clubs to plan and prepare to increase opportunities for participation in sport, recreation and community use following the end of COVID-19 restrictions.
Sport NI will only accept applications from governing bodies, therefore all applications by hockey clubs must be made via an application to Ulster Hockey.
Further details of the fund and the documentation a club will be required to provide are available at the following link:
Ulster Hockey will be attending a Sport NI workshop on Wednesday 9th December and will be hosting an information session for clubs on Thursday 10th December at 7.30pm at which we will outline the process and requirements for submitting applications to Ulster Hockey. To register for this session please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and a zoom link will be provided.
