Application for Financial Support for Snow Sports
Additional Needs (eg autism, deaf):
Contribution from prospective student/parent/guardian/other source:
The Foundation will give a grant towards snow sports lessons and expect the prospective student/parent/guardian or other source to make a minimum contribution of £10 per lesson to be paid to the lesson provider on a lesson-by-basis. You are welcome to contribute more to each lesson to make the grant go further.
We expect lessons to be taken at least once a fortnight to ensure maximum benefit to the participant.
Skiing/snow board level: (if already received lessons)
Reason for wanting to learn to ski (eg family/school holiday, improve coordination, fun):
Is your family in receipt of any of the following benefits:
Universal Credit, Child Tax Credit, Working Tax Credit, Income Based Job Seekers Allowance, Employment Support Allowance, Housing Benefit, Incapacity Benefit or Pension Credit. (please cross out any that don’t apply)
If you or your family are not in receipt of any of the benefits listed above, please let us know the reasons why we should consider your application. It is very unlikely that your application will be successful if you do not meet the benefits criteria, but we will consider very exceptional circumstances.
Is the prospective student in receipt of DLA or PIP: Yes / No (please delete as appropriate)
Please send us photocopies of evidence of one of the benefits or tax credits listed above and DLA/PIP. If the prospective student is not in receipt of DLA/PIP please send a copy of a letter from a doctor, hospital or other medical professional confirming the additional need. This should be a photocopy of your most recent award letter dated within the last 12 months.
If you are confirming with a Bank Statement, it must be less than three months old.
If you are able to scan the evidence above, please return this application by email. If you are not able to scan, please return by post to the address at the bottom of the form
If you’re not emailing the completed form, please post to:
Amanda Masterman, Treasurer, The Snow Sports Foundation, 11 East Street, Hemel Hempstead, Herts, HP2 5BN

Please do not book any lessons before you have been advised that your application has been successful.
