Funding lifeline for talented young athletes

New research shows parents have to fork out as much as £27,000 a year to help their child pursue their sporting ambition, with some taking on second jobs or giving up work, and because of this Sport England have launched a new ‘Backing the Best’ scheme.

Backing the Best will commit £5.5million of National Lottery funding over four years for talented youngsters bursting with potential who, in the early stages of their careers, face the greatest financial challenges.
