HSBC Golf Roots Plus
HSBC Golf Roots Plus projects are an essential component of Golf Foundation delivery as they demonstrate the charity’s social responsibility and commitment to change the lives of young people using the power of golf irrespective of gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, economic or personal circumstances.
The purpose of an HSBC Golf Roots Plus project is to support local groups and organisations working with young people where involvement in golf can provide an alternative and positive focus. An emphasis on ‘Skills for Life’ must underpin each project and should aim to enhance young people’s lives through the catalyst of golf.
The HSBC Golf Roots Plus scheme provides up to £1,500 of project funding to local delivery partners that feel that young people in their care would benefit from developing life skills through sport. Organisations such as youth services, local authorities, police services, apprenticeship bodies, golf clubs or school partnerships have all coordinated projects in the past.
If your organisation is interested in running an HSBC Golf Roots Plus Project in England, please discuss your proposal with your Regional Development Officer before applying. If you are based in Wales, you will need to contact the team at Wales Golf, you can find their details here. If you are based in Scotland, please contact the Scottish Golf Participation Team, firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
The next application window will open later in 2022.
Thanks to support from The R&A, the Golf Foundation was able to offer a golf experience to a whole new audience of young people in Birmingham via its HSBC Golf Roots programme. The national golf charity backed the ‘Bring it on Brum’ summer holiday activities and food programme which staged a unique multi-cultural festival for children and families at Cannon Hill Park in August 21.
