Support, Advice and Funding

Especially in the current climate clubs need as much help as possible. We hope these pages give you some advice on where and how to get support whether that be accessing grants or how to market your club better.

WHSPAA membership is the best possible help we can give you to support your needs.This website is just one of the ways we are helping local clubs. Our club forum events which run 3 or 4 times a year are a perfect opportunity for clubs to discuss and share best practice as well as giving opportunities for club to hear from professionals on topics including funding, school-clubs links to volunteer support.

However if you require help and guidance and are a member of WHSPAA then we are lucky to be able to offer the help of the local council. The Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council over the years have offered incrediable support to WHSPAA and we are continue to work closely with them to develop sport. The council's Youth and Sport Partnership Manager can help with advice, support and can signpost you to the most relevant services.
