‘FORWARD MOTION’

GRANT SYSTEM

The Arctic One set up their own ‘Forward Motion’ Grant System in 2015 and we provide small grants to disabled Individuals, Clubs and Groups to enable them to pursue their sport. To date, we have allocated 110 grants involving 23 different sports including Triathlon, Swimming Cycling and Running.

The Grant System has been incredibly successful and expands annually helping many people from complete grass root to elite level in their chosen sport. We try to engage all the recipients in what the charity does in order to develop it further.

Andy Lewis
We initially met Andy Lewis who is an above knee amputee in 2013 and he was one of our first ever grant recipients. At that point he couldn’t swim, but had huge potential so we suggested he should perhaps consider Triathlon. We provided help with Swimming, Biking, Running coaching and equipment as well as some travel expenses. Three years later and Andy won a gold Medal in the Triathlon at the Rio Paralympics in 2016. Andy has become a Sports Ambassador for Arctic One and is very much involved with our development and success.

We will be running 2 rounds of grants in 2018 (one in March and one in September), but the number of people we can help is reliant on donations, fundraising and income from events, so please get involved where you can!
