Sports clubs, local authorities, schools and community organisations can apply for grants of between £1,000 and £150,000 to enhance local sports and recreational facilities.
Funding is available through Sport England’s Community Asset Fund to be used to enhance traditional sports facilities, as well as outdoor spaces like canal towpaths, woodlands and open spaces etc. that can be used as part of an active lifestyle.
Sport England typically expect their awards to be either:
- Small-scale investments typically ranging from £1,000 to £15,000. These will address emergency works due to something like storm or flood damage, or something totally unexpected that is stopping people from being able to stay active right now.
- Medium-scale investments typically ranging from between £15,000 to £50,000. These will address more substantial changes. This might be an upgrade to an existing facility or developing a new space in the community.
When to apply
This is a rolling programme and applications can be submitted at any time.
