QuidditchUK Emergency Fund

The QuidditchUK Emergency Fund is designed to provide support for established clubs that experience significant financial hardship during a season due to circumstances outside of their control.

QuidditchUK understands that a variety of unpredictable situations can cause unexpected logistical and financial problems for both clubs and players. While we can often do little to prevent such an event in advance, the organisation is able to give some financial assistance to clubs to mitigate part of the impact associated with emergencies, accidents and the failure of external bodies.

Amount:

Up to £500.

Process:

Applications to the Emergency Fund will be assessed on a case-by-case basis by QuidditchUK’s EMT.

Applicants should complete the form below attached with any supporting documentation. Applicants will be contacted for further details where required, and will be notified of the outcome of their inquiry as soon as possible.

3. Expenses incurred specifically in relation to fantasy tournaments, international tournaments, or unofficial matches or tournaments are not eligible for relief under this scheme.
4. Financial outlay must have resulted from circumstances that the Club could not reasonably be expected to have anticipated and which could not be attributed to the action or inaction of the Club or any Club member.
