Details of the Walthamstow Stadium Community Sports Trust (WCST) Fund

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

The programme is overseen by the Walthamstow Community Sports Trust Board and they make decisions on how funding is spent. There is a budget of £50,000 per year and local initiatives can apply for a maximum of £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 in Chingford. They will give priority to any application that benefits L&Q residents, but they will consider projects based within one mile of the surrounding area. 

We encourage applications that will:

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

Application deadlines

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