FACS (Free Access for County Sportspeople)
Many of Surrey’s local Borough/District councils run these which mean you could still access discounted leisure facility use, but on a more local basis rather than across the county. To find out more about FACS please contact your local Sports Development Officer.
Talented young athletes can be nominated by their NGB and receive financial help from this national charity.
Some Sports Councils provide bursary schemes for talented athletes. Most Boroughs/Districts in Surrey have one. Please contact your local Sports Development Officer if you don’t know the details of your local Sports Council.
GLL Sports Foundation
If you live or attend a club in an area serviced by a GLL Sports Centre (such as parts of Reigate and Banstead, Epsom & Ewell, Woking or Guildford), you may be able to benefit from their comprehensive athlete support package - read more on their website.
Surrey Playing Fields supports local clubs with grants (up to £1,000) and low interest loans (up to £40,000). They also offer bursaries to young athletes in elite sport and coaches (up to £250), aged between 10 and 20 years old who need a helping hand to improve in their chosen sport. You can read more on Surrey Playing Field's grant page.
