Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership has launched a new and innovative service for the benefit of those playing, and involved in sport in Somerset.

What do we do:

We offer local people the opportunity to support local sporting causes through a unique crowd funding platform (operated by Podium Partners). By crowd funding we mean the practice of funding a project or venture by raising contributions from a large number of people via the internet.

Who do we do it for:

Young and disabled people of any age and any organisations or initiatives that support them e.g. a young athlete struggling to meet their training costs, a disabled football team who need new kit or a school sports coaching initiative. If you would like to raise funds for your campaign go to create a campaign.

How do we do it:

Anyone can start a campaign by completing the online application form. Once approved, you will be given a page on our site and can start promoting your cause to the local sporting and non sporting public. The public will make donations via the relevant campaign pages until the fund raising target is met, or the campaign expires whichever comes soonest.

Why do we do it:

Quite simply we want to help people achieve their full sporting potential and develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible citizens. This shouldn’t be limited to the ability to pay.
