Wembley Stadium lies at the heart of the London Borough of Brent, in north-west London. It is one of the most diverse and vibrant parts of the capital. But it is also one of high levels of deprivation and need, particularly in terms of low income, poor housing and ill-health. Parts of the borough are amongst the 5% most deprived in London.

WNST has developed a programme specifically to fund projects benefiting people living in Brent. Our constitution requires a sizeable proportion of our funding to go towards football-related projects but we are also interested in supporting sports participation across the board.

We are looking to fund both local sports clubs as well as larger or more general community organisations providing sports activities or facilities. Grants are available for both revenue (running costs, training courses etc.) as well as capital (facilities, equipment etc.)

We expect there to be two grants rounds a year each distributing around £150,000.

Each round will have two programmes:

• Community awards – grants of up to £2,500 to local sports clubs or other organisations towards general running costs, coaching, training courses, equipment etc.

• Strategic awards – a smaller number of larger grants to fund broader revenue projects or larger capital works.
