Nottinghamshire Legacy Fund

To respond to the legacy challenge created by the 2012 Games, and to maintain the momentum of increased sports participation that has been generated by them, a £1million Nottinghamshire Legacy Fund has been established. As well as providing direct financial support, the grants scheme will also support club efforts to lever in additional matched funding.

The Legacy fund comprises of 2 strands:

  • Kick Start £500 - £10,000
  • Game Changer £10,001 - £50,000

“After an amazing summer of sport that inspired people across the UK we must now harness that interest and enthusiasm. This work, commitment and investment by Nottinghamshire County Council is a fantastic example of how a legacy for London 2012 can be created at a local level.”
Seb Coe, Chair, London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

"It is fantastic news that Nottinghamshire County Council is announcing this major Olympic and Paralympic Legacy Fund and has taken the initiative so soon after the conclusion of London 2012 to build on this summer's success. I have benefited directly from financial support in the past from the County Council through its Shining Stars fund. Grants such as this are vital to help athletes concentrate on their sport and I am confident that this money can help find the sports stars of tomorrow."

Triple Paralympic medalist Ollie Hynd, who clinched gold, silver and bronze at London 2012, and received Shining Stars funding worth £2,012 for training and travel purposes this year from Nottinghamshire County Council.
