About This Programme

Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS) and our partners are pleased to support talented young athletes through the GO GOLD Funding Programme.

The aim of GO GOLD is to support talented athletes who are being recognised by their National Governing Bodies of Sport as being our future Olympic, Paralympic, Special Olympic and Commonwealth Games participants.

The 2016/17 GO GOLD Funding Programme will open on Monday 5th September and will close on midnight on Friday 28th October 2016.

The Funding Programme is spilt into two funding Awards – Podium and Performance.

Podium Level Funding

This level is funded by Leicestershire County Council, Leicester City Council and Rutland County Council. All eligible applicants will be automatically be put forward for Podium Level Funding.

Performance Level Funding

Unsuccessful applicants at Podium Level will be automatically referred to their Local Authority for a Performance grant (£100) if their Local Authority is participating in the programme.

This level is funded by Charnwood Borough Council, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council, Leicester City Council, Melton Borough Council, North West Leicestershire District Council, Oadby and Wigston Borough Council and Rutland County Council.

Unfortunately Blaby District Council and Harborough District Council are no longer able to support the GO GOLD Funding Programme.
