North Ayrshire Council Nurturing Excellence Programme
The local authority will spend up to £72,000 to support stars of the future through its new Nurturing Excellence Initiative.

The fund is part of the council’s commitment to creating a legacy of excellence in sport inspired by the 2012 Olympics and the Glasgow Commonweath Games in 2014.

Young people seeking funding must be resident in North Ayrshire or, if they are studying, have been living in the area.

Successful applicants will become sporting ambassadors and join the council and partners in promoting events across North Ayrshire.

Funding and support includes the free use of leisure facilities, development support programmes and cash to attend competitions and training courses.

The fund will help to support athletes from district right up to national level.

As well as displaying their sporting talents, applicants will outline how much sport means to them, as well as who influenced them as they look to excel in their particular field.

Community and culture spokesman Councillor Alan Hill said: “This programme will form a lasting legacy for both the Olympic and Commonwealth Games.

“It is important we grasp this once in a lifetime chance. These events will bring a focus and inspiration to our young athletes and we must help to support them as best we can.

“In supporting our talented young people now, we can help to build pride and inspiration in the generations that follow.”
