However, if Sport England give BF money to be targetted at a certain group, they expect their money to be spent on that group. They are most particular about that, so a proposal to fund (say) Welsh Veterans with money granted for England youth programs is likely to meet with a brusque refusal.
What would happen if I had an irrefutable case that getting kids fencing from 10 to 13 would eventually lead to long term greater numbers?
Since those 10-13 year olds will become 14+ during the funding cycle (ie by 2017) then I suspect that you would get a fairly positive hearing.
