This £15 million fund focuses on awards of up to £10,000 that support clubs and community groups respond to the challenges of returning to play during the coronavirus pandemic.
This fund will make awards, using National Lottery and government funding, of between £300 and £10,000 from a total pot of £15 million, to help sport and activity groups, clubs and organisations respond to the immediate challenges of returning to play in a coronavirus-safe way.
This could include contributing to covering the costs incurred by having to deliver activity in smaller groups than normal, or having the correct hygiene and safety equipment.
Funding could be used for minor amendments to facilities, additional sports equipment, signage, sanitation and training courses to help you deliver your activities safely.
As we move through to the next stages of the government’s roadmap, we’ll consider new or adapted projects that’ll enable more people to get active.
- Awards of £300-£10,000 are possible
- Awards are to help with essential changes to services or facilities
- Applications should be focused on returning people to previously run activity, or enabling previous projects to adapt to resume delivery, when that’s possible.
- Applications should be focused on the key funding priorities below.
The fund will have flexible priorities, to be able to best respond to the frequently changing challenges posed to community sport.
