HASSRA Development Fund
The HASSRA Development Fund (HDF) is here to help you achieve your best in your chosen activity and has funds to help you overcome financial barriers to accessing your activity and making progress.
Members who consider themselves to be disadvantaged or to have a disability can also access funds provided by the CSiS Charity Fund through the HDF.
Things you need to know:
To apply to the HDF you should:
• be a HASSRA member
• be able to fully describe your specific activity and needs
• be able to outline the costs you require help with
• keep us informed of your progress and achievements so that we can monitor the Fund’s success and promote it to other members.
The HDF can help individuals develop within a wide range of activities in the following categories:
Sports & Leisure – developing skills in your chosen activity where you can show you have a sound base and potential to go on and do more. Examples in this category include sports (including coaching and refereeing), arts and crafts.
Volunteering – developing your potential to serve HASSRA or your local community where you can show you have an existing interest and potential to go on and do more. Examples in this category include life skills coaching, youth worker, scout or guide leader, and so on.
Members who consider themselves to be financially disadvantaged or to have a disability may apply under the above categories for help either to take up a new activity or to realise their potential in an existing activity.
Full details of the categories and all of the criteria under which members can apply are contained in the Development Fund Application Booklet. (Click the following link for an accessible version of the HDF form)
So far, over 1,500 members have applied which demonstrates our commitment to both non-disabled and disabled members throughout the Association and has helped applicants to achieve success at all levels.
