The GLL Sport Foundation applications are open!
Ahead of a huge year of UK and World sport in 2020, Lambeth’s next generation of title-chasing athletes can apply for support in going for gold in the big events next year, thanks to the GLL Sport Foundation, the UK’s largest independent athlete support programme in partnership with Lambeth’s Gifted and Talented Scheme.
The GLL Sport Foundation (GSF) launched in 2008, by charitable social enterprise, GLL – operator of public leisure facilities in Lambeth- helps aspiring sporting talent fulfil their potential. Supported athletes can benefit from financial support, physiotherapy, gym memberships at GLL’s Better sport and leisure facilities and more.
GSF supports athletes across its regional network in 73 areas of the UK. In 2019, GSF supported over 3,000 athletes across 117 sporting disciplines, taking its total investment to £11 million in 11 years.
Previously, this support has contributed to the success of athletes including Lambeth based Flora Perkins, GSF SportsAid supported cyclist, who said “The GLL sports foundation helps me to travel and compete around the country where I gain experience through racing. It also enables me to get equipment that helps me to perform the best that I can.”
