Community Grants Scheme Information

It is with great disappointment that the Swimathon Foundation announces the postponement of their Community Grants Scheme for 2021. Unfortunately, the current status of swimming provision in the UK, as a result of coronavirus, means it is very difficult to allocate funding for this calendar year.

However, the Swimathon Foundation’s determination to support worthy aquatics causes across the country remains a key pillar of their work and the scheme will return in 2022. The Swimathon Foundation will be in touch through relevant organisations in due course, once the 2022 Community Grants Scheme is ready for applications. For now, the Swimathon Foundation offer their full support to the wider swimming community as facilities look to re-open later in the year.

The Swimathon Foundation are aware that the swimming and aquatics community are facing a hugely difficult period of time. The Swimathon Foundation have launched a second COVID-19 Relief Fund for small swimming and aquatic organisations to apply for. Find out more here.

Community Grants Scheme Information

The Swimathon Foundation Community Grants Scheme offers funding to groups and individuals who provide and promote swimming in their local community. The Foundation is passionate about encouraging people to get involved with swimming, which it hopes to encourage even further with its Community Grants.

Grants vary from £500 to £2,500 and will only be awarded to organisations supported by pools that are participating in Swimathon. The grants are administered by Swim England and are awarded on an annual basis.
