Funding information, advice and guidance service available for affiliated clubs

England Touch is offering a free information, guidance and advice service for affiliated clubs who are looking for new sources of funding to help them grow and develop. 

There are a wide variety of funding opportunities for clubs to explore, such as local authorities, community foundations, County Sports Partnerships, and lotteries.

But writing the right pitch to secure those all-important bids takes time and understanding of the right things you need to include, such as:

  • How to understand and engage your audience
  • Setting realistic budgets, outputs and targets
  • Relevant stats, facts and documentation to support your bid

And then how to evaluate and improve the bids which are not successful so that the next time you apply you get the funding you are seeking. 

Adam Irvine, England Touch’s funding manager, has years of experience in securing funding for a wide variety of organisations, and is here to support your club’s ambitions in this area.
