This fund aims to use sport and physical activity as a means of bringing a community together and tackling inequalities via awards of between £300 and £10,000 from a pot of £5million of National Lottery funding.
Sport England is marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by supporting such projects and providing opportunities for people who may be less physically active.
It wants organisations to consider how they could work more collaboratively across their community, in order to make the biggest possible impact, with a focus on those from disadvantaged areas.
Anyone planning to apply should consider any additional costs or delivery changes due to the pandemic to ensure you can achieve your aims.
Funds are available for project costs such as facility hire and coaching, as well as for small capital improvements.
Eligible types of organisations can include:
- A community amateur sports club
- An unregistered voluntary and community organisation with a not-for-profit constitution
- A registered charity
- Schools using their facilities for wider community benefit
- Local authority bodies, including town, parish and community councils
There are also other types of organisations that can benefit from the funding.
