Grants for school-age sport
The Barcelona Institute of Sports offers city residents a series of grants that facilitate access to sport and physical activities for children.
In order to facilitate access to sports and physical activities for the city's children and young people aged between 6 and 17, outside school hours, Barcelona City Council offers a system of grants for families, which are adjudicated according to the level of available income per member of each family household.
Under exceptional circumstances, young people up to the age of 19 who have a certificate of disability and children who do not live in Barcelona but go to school in the city, due to special educational needs, are included.
Barcelona City Council wishes to ensure the participation of children living in the city, aged from 1 to 17, in leisure-sports activities during the summer holidays, regardless of the economic capacity of their families or their physical, psychological or sensory condition.
The income sufficiency indicator (IRS in Catalan) is used to indicate the percentage for calculating each of the grants (30%, 60% or 90% of the total cost of the activity).
Barcelona City Council offers schools, associations and sports organisations, among others, a service for children and young people with disabilities who need a support person in order to do a sports activity in an inclusive way.
During school hours, the service can be requested for taking part in IBE organised activities in the School Activities Programme (PAE).
Outside school hours, any IBE-approved association, organisation, club, etc. which carries out their activities in our city may request the service.
In either case, the support-monitor service is carried out to coincide with the school calendar and applications are made by the organisation that runs the activity in which the child wishes to take part.
Applications can be made using the following form:
During the holiday period, applications are made as part of the summer activity campaign.
