The sported. mentoring scheme has already secured over £400,000 for sports projects in Cornwall, within the first eighteen months of going live.

sported.'s team of volunteer mentors work with clubs and organisations that use sport as the tool to engage with disadvantaged young people. The mentors help the groups develop sound business plans and effective funding application strategies. Currently sported. has a team of mentors working on projects throughout Cornwall and sported. is confident that their mentoring support work will lead to many more successes in accessing funding, and help secure sports project delivery for young people.

As sported. are extending their services in the county, and hoping to engage with more community groups, they are looking for more volunteers with business or sports development experience to get involved.
