How much will I receive? 

The amount of subsidy you receive is determined by the entry fee to your chosen event:

  • £10.00 - £20.00 entry fees: 100% awarded
  • £20+ entry fees: £20 awarded

Please note that it can take up to 60 days for the payment to reach your account. 

How often can I claim?

You can claim for up to a maximum of two events per calendar year. Payments can only be made for events that have taken place in that calendar year.

How do I claim?

To claim this subsidy you must have been a member at least four months. You should enter the event yourself, paying the full entry fee for your relevant category/discipline. 

Your application must be made up to two months after the event has taken place. To receive your subsidy, please include a valid link to the results page for your event when applying. This can be done in the link to results section of the application form. 

All forms must be submitted as soon after the event as possible and no longer than two months after the event has ended.

Budgetary limitations

The activity subsidy scheme is a budget limited initiative. This means that we reserve the right to close the scheme once the budget is exhausted.

In such circumstances, all registrations properly made and accepted before that point will be honoured regardless of when the actual event takes place during that year.
