The Trust was established in 1984 as a charitable trust. It is a non-profit making educational charity, registered with the Charities Commission and its aims are to support individuals and organisations in the development of sport for young people (u21). To date the Trust has supported a wide range of projects from contributions towards development/improvement of facilities, contributions for equipment for newly established clubs, bursaries for attendees on relevant courses and contributions towards the relocation costs of England players for their education and netball training.
Due to its expenditure on deserving projects and the decrease in income, the Trust currently does not have the resources to continue as an effective provider of financial support for the development of sport for young people. The Trust has therefore been looking at alternative sources of funding, one of which is fundraising- the objective would be to generate a minimum of £10,000 per annum (net of costs etc). If you have fundraising expertise and are interested in fundraising for the Youth Trust please contact the Trust on firstname.lastname@example.org by 30th April 2014.
The Club Starter Fund is aimed at Back to Netball groups or existing clubs that want to ‘adopt’ a group of Back to Netball participants and enable them to play as part of their club (please note it is not for clubs to run Back to Netball sessions).
The aim of this fund is to kickstart clubs and ensure they have finances to purchase some of the initial things that might be needed whilst they are establishing themselves. Full details are included in the leaflet.
For further information contact your local Netball Development Officer or Community Coach.

England Netball are pleased to provide updated guidance related to domestic rules for Netball in England. As you know we play to the INF Rules of Netball, however where the rules do not necessarily meet the needs for netball played within England we sometimes need to adjust to suit our unique needs. Various groups have helped shape these rulings and they have all been approved by the England Netball Rules Committee. As with many rules there is a balance between player safety and inclusion. England Netball believe that these domestic rulings strike this balance.
