SOA Development Fund Open for Applications

Alongside the gradual re-start of orienteering events and activities we would like to encourage clubs to start thinking again about development. The SOA Development Fund can help support grassroots orienteering through funding made available annually by sportscotland. We are now opening the fund for applications, with a deadline for submission of project proposals of 30th Sep 2020.

We would encourage clubs to think widely about ways in which they may wish to develop and to come up with new projects that can help move them towards achieving this. The funding is available to support new initiatives and projects rather than standard or recurring capital costs. Clubs considering applying to the SOA Development Fund are encouraged to contact their RDO in the first instance to discuss the nature of their idea. RDO contacts are as follows:

North – Sarah Dunn, email sarah@scottish-orienteering.org

East – Judy Bell, email judy@scottish-orienteering.org

West – Fran Loots, email fran@scottish-orienteering.org

More information about the fund is available, together with an application form for 2020 here. A summary of recently funded projects is avalable here.
