Sport England have launched a new £5 million fund to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee that aims to use sport and physical activity to bring communities together and tackle inequalities.
Using money from the National Lottery, the fund will make awards of between £300 and £10,000 to community organisations in support of new projects providing opportunities to become more physically active.
The funds could be used for things such as facility hire and coaching costs, or even small capital improvements.
The fund is open for applications now and will make awards to not-for-profit organisations helping inactive people to get active, or less active people to become more active.
They particularly want to hear from projects supporting projects working with people living in areas of disadvantage.
Sport England also recognise the pandemic may still be affecting the delivery of projects, either in how they’re delivered or how much they cost to deliver. Therefore, applicants should make sure to consider any such additional cost or delivery changes to ensure you can achieve their aims.
