How we can help

Over the past year and a half, we have levered in over £350,000 towards sport, physical activity, and larger scale facility funding for local organisations and clubs in Hailsham and surrounding areas. 


Quick-Win Scheme

In partnership with Lightning Fibre Superfast Broadband and Step Up Sports Consultancy Ltd, we can help local sports clubs and organisations to apply for funding up to £20,000.

This funding can be for coaching costs, equipment, small improvements to facilities, or venue hire. This is a free service, dependant on time resources. 

Capital Projects

In partnership with our grants specialist, Annette Buswell from Step Up Sports Consultancy, we have been helping to shape the provision of sporting facilities in the area. This includes installing pathways around recreation fields, floodlighting, pavilion improvements and replacements, multi use game areas, football pitches, and a potential sports park. We can bring together all relevant partners such as local councils, private and voluntary clubs, and organisations to help develop funding bids. 

We can also help organisations become bid-ready by helping you develop essential documents like enviromental and safeguarding policies, consitutions, and incorporation documents to provide committee protection from liability, etc. 

This service has some low cost charges, but you will be fully aware of the costs before we start working with you. We understand local organisations all struggle to keep sports and activities going, so we ensure our fees are fair.

If you are interested in learning more about how we can help your club or organisation,  please contact Steve Wennington, Chairman of Hailsham Active, on 07980 643827.
