Boost Charitable Trust was established in 2005 to Build On Over-looked Sporting Talent (BOOST) and to champion the disabled and disadvantaged, inspiring them to overcome their challenges through the power of sport.
The Trust provides grants to organisations that support disabled or disadvantaged people to overcome obstacles and take part in sporting activities in the UK. Small grants are available to charities and non-profit making organisations with a focus on helping disabled and disadvantaged individuals in the UK to participate in sport.
Small grants of up to £500 are available. Larger grants may also be awarded at the discretion of the Trustees.
Charities and non-profit making organisations in the UK that have a focus on sport are eligible to apply.
Funding is available for projects that give opportunities to those who wish to fulfil their sporting ambitions, at any level.
Boost has awarded grants across a very wide spectrum of sports projects aimed at helping those who are disadvantaged in some way to overcome their challenges through sport.
About 40% have been awarded to disability programmes.
Applications may be submitted at any time.
