The Elite Athlete Support Programme is an athlete-led development programme whereby financial assistance and a network of support services are tailored to meet the needs of high performance sportspeople. The value and benefits of each 'package of support' is assessed on an individual basis and ranks support depending on the athlete's achievements, potential to develop as an athlete and commitment to represent and promote the Institute.
