Sports Council Grants


From 1 April, 2015 the format of the Sports Council is changing. It will become the Newcastle-under-Lyme Sports Advisory Council and will play a bigger role in the sporting community. It will no longer issue grants directly but will advise the Borough Council's Grants Assessment Panel (who will be responsible for the future awarding of grants). 'Sports' Grants will only apply to individuals. Clubs will still be able to apply but it will be through a 'Small' Grant. Further information on this can be gained from Robin Wiles, email


 A launch event for the new organisation is being held on Thursday 26 March, 2015 at 7pm at a venue to be confirmed. Representatives from local schools, sports clubs and individuals who are resident in the borough are invited along to the event.

The first Annual General Meeting is scheduled for 16 April, 2015 at 7pm (again venue to be confirmed)

If you would like to attend the launch event, nominate someone to sit on the new Committee or if you require further information, please contact Mark Thornewill (Interim Chair of the Newcastle-under-Lyme Sports Advisory Council) on 01785 619896. Alternatively, you can email
