If you would like to be involved in this exciting programme and deliver an SSE Wildcats Centre, here’s what you need to know.

SSE Wildcats Centres MUST run for a minimum of 16 weeks. 

ALL  SSE Wildcats Centres must complete registers at each session and upload them to the online system on a weekly basis. This is a crucial part of the funding criteria – and failure to upload registers may result in the funding being withdrawn.

All organisations will receive a £900 start-up grant and 30 Nike footballs.
