Pro Active Clubs funding has been developed to support clubs to engage with their local communities; to facilitate more people to discover handball, engage regularly through club activity and achieve their potential in handball. Through this funded activity it is hoped that the clubs will gain new members thus improving the sustainability and structure of our clubs for our core market of regular handball players.
England Handball is keen to support Handball Clubs to be stronger, better governed, more attractive and more sustainable to enable them to maintain and grow their core market of regular handball players.
Those clubs that currently meet the minimum criteria detailed in the programme - and are committed to achieving Pro Active clubs status by meeting all the criteria - are encouraged to apply for this grant funding to support their club activities.
There are three Pro Active Club funding pots this year:
Emerging Clubs This funding pot is available to Emerging clubs ONLY. Clubs can apply for up to £500 per funding window (clubs can apply in both windows) and should demonstrate how the funded activity will support their club to become a fully affiliated club with at least one team competing in an EHA competition by the 2019/20 season.
Affiliated clubs This funding pot is available to fully affiliated clubs with at least one team competing in an EHA competition. Clubs can apply for up to £500 per funding window
