Following feedback from our 2015 strategy consultation we have created a GrantFinder guide to support our clubs, leagues and delivery partners to access investment.
As the game changes, costs increase and volunteer time is at a premium we are fully aware that accessing funding is an increasing challenge for our members. To support this we have produced an easy to use, interactive funding guide containing 46 different funding schemes and grants that are available to football.
