GLL Sport Foundation

  • GLL Sport Foundation

    The GLL Sport Foundation (GSF) is an athlete support programme in association with GLL, Belfast City Council and The Mary Peters Trust.

    Sport NI supports the programme and welcomes any opportunities for talented athletes to access support for their training and competition programmes. Dr Michael McKillop is the Belfast ambassador for the programme.

    This programme complements and works in partnership with the existing athlete support framework that operates across Belfast to support athletes across the city to achieve their sporting goals.

    The GLL Sport Foundation (GSF) is the largest independent athlete support programme in the UK and has a positive track record in supporting athletes. In 2015, GSF supported 1,700 athletes across 105 sporting disciplines and with over 90% of award recipients receiving no other centralised funding support the programme is focussed on supporting athletes with the right support at the right time along their sporting journey.
