Sport England

This funding from Sport England is about supporting local clubs and organisations through the Covid-19 crisis and with the return to play. This may be the implementation of changes needed to ensure you’re adhering to the latest government guidelines around social distancing, it may be the need for additional coaching, facility hire or the purchasing of personal protective equipment to make sure everyone who takes part in activity at your venue is safe. It could be that a loss of income has severely impacted your ability to survive, or the need to undertake essential maintenance of your facilities that are now not possible due to the crisis. Active Together is a crowdfunding initiative helping sports clubs and other organisations to set up and run their own crowdfunding campaigns to help sustain themselves through the Covid-19 crisis. Initially with a £1 million budget from the National Lottery, Active Together was designed to help with the immediate financial impact of coronavirus and in the longer-term, the return to play.

Deadline: none currently
