Walthamstow-v1 high

Walthamstow Stadium Section 106 has received a budget of £250,000 to help increase community participation in sports, recreation and other leisure activities across a five-year period.

The programme will be overseen by the Walthamstow Community Sports Trust (WCST) Board.

The board will make decisions on how funding is spent with a budget of £50,000 per year for local initiatives. They will award grants of up to £10,000 per application.

The board is looking to fund projects that will deliver sports and promote wellbeing from the new community facility at Stadium Place, Chingford. They will also consider projects based within one mile of the surrounding area.

Applications that benefit L&Q residents will be given priority.

We encourage applications that will:

  • advance local education in healthier living
  • promote community participation in healthy recreation
  • provide facilities for sport, recreation and other leisure activities in the interests of social welfare
  • improve the conditions of life for those who use the facilities

A downloadable funding application can be found here.

Future application deadlines:

4 July 2019
3 October 2019
6 February 2020

Typically, the fund has a two-stage process and funding can take up to three months to process following board approval.
