The DCAAF is a funding initiative set up by Active Schools East Lothian, Dunbar Grammar School and cluster Primary’s and the Dunbar and East Lothian Area Partnership.  The DCAAF’s aim is to reduce inequalities by improving access to local recreational and sporting opportunities.

What will the DCAAF Fund?

The DCAAF will consider covering anything that improves access to local sporting and recreational opportunities which closes the attainment gap for youngsters within the Dunbar area. This could be sporting equipment, assistance with transport costs and help with costs associated with performance athlete programmes among many other things. The DCAAF is also able to assist with costs of Coach Education courses.

 Who is Eligible?

  • Be in receipt of free school meals
  • Be in receipt of Education Maintenance Allowance
  • Have been referred to the DCAAF from Support for Learning, Guidance Departments, class teachers (primary) or other qualifying agencies

To access coach education or course cost support individuals must age 25 years or younger AND be actively volunteering within Dunbar or surrounding areas. The chosen course must aid the volunteer to better complete their voluntary role.
