What help is available?
Monetary grants, normally up to a maximum of £500 for each application, can be given to assist with any cost involved with the ongoing development of an individual pupil's gift. For example, these costs could be for the purchase of specialist equipment, specialist training, representation at national/international level, and so on.
Please note that if you are a pupil who attends a Telford & Wrekin school, you are no longer eligible to receive funding via this scheme. Telford & Wrekin Council now have their own Elite Sport Scheme.
