The HSBC Golf Roots Plus scheme provides up to £1,500 of project funding to local delivery partners that feel that young people in their care would benefit from developing life skills through sport. 

The purpose of an HSBC Golf Roots Plus project is to support local groups and organisations working with young people where involvement in golf can provide an alternative and positive focus. An emphasis on ‘Skills for Life’ must underpin each project and should aim to enhance young people’s lives through the catalyst of golf.
