Awards for all is the most popular grants programme so will prioritise groups with smaller incomes. Due to high demand on the programme, organisations that have a large annual income may not be able to get funding through Awards for All.

Persimmon announces £600k of funding to support young people in sport

Persimmon Healthy Communities supports sport for young people in England, Wales and Scotland.

From May to December 2017 we are giving away 30 monthly donations of £750 each to purchase sports kits and equipment for teams and individuals aged 21 and under.

Our main objective is for people to use the £750 to purchase sports kits and we would be delighted if you would put our logo on the kit! However, it may be that you don’t need kit and therefore we will consider other entries if you would like to purchase equipment or spend the money on your facilities.

As part of your entry (but not essential) you may also enter to win our fantastic grand prize – £200,000 to spend on your sport, club or team.

In January 2018 our 30 businesses will choose one entry to go forward into our national competition.

The national prize is a massive £200,000 for you, your club or team. And we’re not stopping there. We also have two runners up prizes of £50,000 each and 27 finalist awards of £5,000 each.
