The Give for Grassroots Fund has been set up by The Scottish Football Partnership Trust in conjunction with The Scottish Football Association. Funding is available specifically to support ‘Individual’ players at community football clubs up to age 18 who are suffering through financial hardship because of the Covid-19 pandemic and who are at risk of dropping out of the game.
Affiliated clubs are encouraged to apply to this fund to cover 12 months of critical participation costs for disadvantaged playing members so that any financial barrier which exists, can be removed and the player can get back on the pitch and remain part of the football family when football returns.
The Scottish Football Partnership Trust is committed to safeguarding and respecting the privacy of
applicant clubs and organisations. The Data Protection Act 2018 contains certain rules to protect your
privacy and as a data controller under the act we must comply with the act at all times. As a grant
funding body we need to gather certain information to verify the identity and suitability of applicants
who apply to us via our various funding strands. Whilst we only ever ask for a very limited amount of
personal data we endeavour at all times to keep safe and secure any personal data and information
provided to us. Once we are in receipt of your personal information we use strict procedures and
security features to try to prevent unauthorised access to it. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee secure transmission of your information to our Website or from you via email so any transmissions or
communications in this regard are done so at your own risk. The information which is provided to us will only be stored within the European Economic Area and may be held on files, both paper and electronic. We will use this information to process applications, to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our grants and to prepare statistics and report on our investments. We will hold your personal information only for as long as is necessary. Your personal information will also be kept securely to prevent unauthorised access by other people. You must inform us of any changes to your personal information so that we can keep it up to date. You have the right to access the information we hold about you. Any access requests may be subject to a fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you. From time to time we may disclose your personal information to select third parties including our partner organisations, sportscotland and the Scottish FA as well as other recognised grant funding bodies throughout the duration of any project specific grant funding bid and throughout the duration of any subsequent funding award. We will never pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, however we may add you to our own mailing list for our magazine which we publish bi-annually and distribute electronically. If you wish to be removed from our mailing list, please email us at email@example.com and we shall remove your details immediately or click on the unsubscribe tab at the bottom of the email you may have received. Please note that by completing and signing this application form you are confirming that you have understood the information above, and you are giving explicit consent for the data collected about you and/or your organisation to be recorded and used for those purposes. You also confirm that any other individuals whose data you will provide to The Scottish Football Partnership Trust have provided their consent to the data collected about them being recorded and used for the above purposes. Please note that whilst your club or organisation is required to complete this form and to
provide us with information in order to make an application, you as an individual have the choice to opt out of personally completing this form. If you have any concerns about sharing personal data with The Scottish Football Partnership Trust, it would seem sensible to ask another authorised member of your club or organisation to complete the following pages of this application.
All Applications will be subject to an initial assessment by Scottish Football
Partnership Trust and Scottish FA Regional Football Development staff. Following
this process, recommendations will be taken to the Scottish Football Partnership
Trust’s Board of Trustees for a final decision. All applicants will then receive
written confirmation of the outcome of their application. If the Trustees consider
that the club’s application will not receive an Award, we may send you a letter
detailing the reason(s) for our decision. Any awards made are subject to Scottish
Football Partnership Trust’s standard terms and conditions and a copy of these
will be provided.
