BRITISH GYMNASTIC LETTER – EXTRACT

We are experiencing unprecedented circumstances this year, the effects of which are taking its toll on our community and on our sport. We have received questions from clubs about membership, so we wanted to take this opportunity to provide an update on the next membership year.

Membership discount for participants

We’ve reached out to clubs on an individual basis, and through our Club Stakeholder Advisory Group, to understand the challenges you’re facing. We want to support participants getting back to your clubs and so for the first month of membership renewals in October, and for new members who register at this time, we will be subsidising the annual membership fee for bronze and silver members. This means:

Bronze members – £15 for 2020/21 membership reduced from £19 in 2019/20
Bronze competitive members – £20 for 2020/21 membership reduced from £25 in 2019/20
Silver members – £35 in 2020/21 membership reduced from £43 in 2019/20

Alongside this we are encouraging participants who are struggling financially due to the impact of the coronavirus to apply for funding through the British Gymnastics Foundation Hardship Programme. Applications are now open and will remain open throughout July and August.

To help you plan we’ll be providing further details on membership in the coming weeks including how to complete your renewal.

HARDSHIP GRANTS THROUGH WELSH/BRITISH GYMNASTICS

July 1st, 2020

Please see the information received from Welsh Gymnastics that we want to share with every member of our Academy.
Applications now open for special round of Hardship Grants funding

Welsh Gymnastics members can now apply for financial support through a special round of Hardship Grants funding.

Alongside the British Gymnastics Foundation, we’ve been working hard to make extra funds available to our members that are most in need during this difficult time. Through our Step Forward Plan, those going through significant financial hardship can now apply to receive funding that will help to keep them in the sport they love.

Before making an application, below are all the details you need to know.

What is a Hardship Grant and how long have I got to apply?

The Hardship Grants Programme is an initiative from the British Gymnastics Foundation and was initially designed to provide financial assistance to British Gymnastics members to help them continue participating in gymnastics through times of significant financial hardship. The programme has been running for over five years now and has helped over 300 of our members.

Due to the current crisis, we are delivering a special round of funding for participants, which supports our members suffering financially. The grants can be used to help pay for the costs of participating in gymnastics for individual participants. Applications will remain open throughout July and August.

Who can apply for Hardship Grants funding?
In this special funding round for participants, the grants are open to current British Gymnastics members who are in significant financial hardship and are at risk of dropping out of gymnastics as a result of COVID-19.

Funding will not be awarded to any of the following:

British Gymnastics members who are deemed to be financially capable of/or have the means to fund their involvement in gymnastics.
Any person who has made a false claim in the past.
Gymnasts in receipt of UK Sport Lottery funding.
British Gymnastics staff members.

It is extremely important that you know we are here to support those most in need and at risk of dropping out of gymnastics completely. We will treat fraudulent claims very seriously and we strongly urge those who have the means to get back to gymnastics, to not apply. Doing so may result in charity funds not being available to support someone else who is in desperate need of our help.

Once an application has been made, what happens next?
Throughout July, August and September, alongside the Foundation, we will review all applications for funding. We aim to review all applications and notify each applicant of our award decision within a month of receiving their completed application. We will fully consider each individual case and we are committed to ensuring that everyone has the means to get back to gymnastics when it is safe to do so.
