Grants, Loans & Funding (Update Jan 22)

Where are we trying to get to?

(from original Action Plan)

There is a great opportunity to target funding direct to sports and individuals in order to support the development of a healthy, active and successful Guernsey. We want to see sports able to deliver their development plans and individuals able to fulfil their potential through a coordinated funding scheme bringing together private, public and third sector money.

How far have we got?

The Commission has been working hard to establish a new working relationship with the States of Guernsey which will give some long-term certainty to the role of the Commission, recognise our expertise and autonomy, allow us to continue to be the voice of sport within government and support all our member sports to be the best they can be. Sustainable funding for the Commission also puts us in a stronger position to leverage private funding or corporate sponsorship.

We are grateful to our current sponsors for their continued support without which we would not be able to do the work we do.

Progress on a new funding agreement has been slow, but we are confident that the new Assembly sees the benefit of commissioned services as part of its desire to ‘right-size government’ and we will continue to push for a new deal that offers best value to sport and the wider community.
