Supporting Cricket Clubs & Young Cricketers

Grants will be given to help UK cricket clubs to develop & grow the opportunities for young cricketers in their area. The purpose of these grants is to ensure a strong pipeline of young people coming into the sport, ensuring it’s resilience for the future and to engage more communities in the sport. This is to help young people stay active, build relationships and learn a new skill.

Grants could be used to provide kit or equipment, refurbish facilities to be more suitable for the time, space and expertise to launch successful youth engagement programmes.

For any application, you must be able to evidence how you plan to engage the community and demonstrate the impact your project will have on your community.

We will strive to support as many projects as possible, but please remember not every application will receive funding and the decision of the charity trustees is final.


To ensure our funding reaches those who need it most and is invested responsibly, we must ensure that any grant recipients adhere to the following guidelines.

Your project must:

  • be submitted by an applicant aged 18 or older
  • be UK based and for the benefit of UK communities
  • not be for the benefit of any one individual
  • not be used for commercial gain of an individual or organisation (the project raising funds which are reinvested into the project is acceptable – eg. From discretionary donations for individuals to take part)

Your organisation must:

  • have a bank account in its own name and have been operating for at least 12 months


If you are successful in your application, the Romero Group Charitable Trust will confirm this to you in writing.

As part of the requirements for the grant to be paid, we will ask for estimated timescales for the completion of your project. We need you to submit evidence of how your funding has been spent within an agreed timescale. We will also require photographic evidence of the project during implementation and after completion.

This is so we can be sure that the grant has been used appropriately and within the eligibility criteria outlined in the application process.

Included in our funding agreement, will be an obligation for your organisation to recognise the Romero Group Charitable Trust when the project is complete.

For physical projects, this may include a plaque or sign outlining the project was ‘Supported by the Romero Group Charitable Trust’, and for more social projects, a similar recognition must be included in any collateral.

The charity also retains the right to publicise our funding in your project through usage of supplied images of the project (exceptions may be made for any projects of a sensitive nature).
