Get Set Go! Fund

Grants from £100 up to £1,000 are available for individuals with disabilities to purchase specialist equipment for physical activity and sport

The Get Set Go! Fund provides grants to individuals with disabilities who wish to purchase specialist equipment for physical activity and sport.

Are you an aspiring wheelchair basketball player looking to play for Great Britain? Perhaps you’re aiming to win a race against your sibling on your brand new frame runner? Or maybe you’re whizzing around the pitch in a sports powerchair with your teammates is what you enjoy most? Grants range from £100 – £1,000 and can benefit both children and adults living in Somerset, North Somerset, Bristol, BANES and Wiltshire. The fund may be small, but applications are quick and easy.

We’d love to help you kickstart your fundraising and achieve your dreams. If you’re successful, you’ll have 12 months to raise the rest of the funds you need to buy your equipment.
