My Karate club has been declined a grant for SAFETY EQUIPMENT by the community chest who are regulated by sports Wales because of the governing body we are in.
We feel this is discrimination and ALL karate clubs should be eligible for grants.
We, the undersigned, petition the Sports Council of Wales to grant funding for safety equipment to Welsh Karate clubs, irrespective of Karate Association Affiliation.
A stated aim of the Sports Wales Community Chest scheme is to make money available for community sport and physical recreation, yet grants will only be considered if the club is affiliated to the recognised governing body.
We believe ALL CHILDREN should be eligible to receive a grant for provision safety equipment, irrespective of the internal politics of the Sports Council, Governing Bodies and Sports Associations.
We demand that Sports Council of Wales reconsider the granting of funds for the provision of safety equipment via the Community Chest scheme.
