SUPPORTING ATHLETES SINCE 2008
The GLL Sport Foundation is the largest independent athlete support programme in the UK and is focused on transforming people’s lives, inspiring and promoting community skills and cohesion through sport and physical activity.
Since the Foundation launched in 2008 it has provided over 23,000 athlete awards across Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth, Deaflympic and Special Olympic sports at a total support value of over £12million.
WE'VE SUPPORTED OVER 23,000 ATHLETES
The Foundation provides direct cash plus free access to training facilities and specialist support such as sports massage and physiotherapy. 96% of supported athletes receive no other centralised support.
The Foundation works in partnership with its key partners SportsAid, SportsAid Wales and the Mary Peters Trust.
TOTAL SUPPORT VALUE OF £12MILLION
The Foundation is operated across local authority and public sector areas in which GLL operate. Here is an example of how the support is making a direct impact to athletes in Belfast.
PARTNERSHIP IS KEY
The programme works in direct partnership with local authority and public sector partners and also vitally a significant amount of sponsors and supporters that make the financial operation of the programme possible.
