Don’t miss out on Kickstart jobs in boxing clubs

August 18, 2021 | by Matt Halfpenny


The Police Clubs of Great Britain’s partnership with the Department of Work and Pensions’ Kickstart Programme has proved overwhelmingly popular with England Boxing Clubs across the country – and there is still time to reap the benefits.

More than 160 clubs across the country have accessed in excess of £500,000 in funding, which enables England Boxing clubs to create a paid role that is filled by a young, unemployed member.

It is part of £1.65 million that has already been earmarked for sports clubs in England since January 2021, allowing a host of organisations to set on a valued member of staff to help ensure smooth, day-today running.

It is expected the figure among England Boxing clubs alone, in both non-repayable grants and wages, will reach £750,000 by June 2022.

While it is not too late for EB clubs to register for the programme, they must do so by 31st December to be considered.
