New funding available for the Sport and Leisure sector

Each year Sport England invests more than £250 million of National Lottery and public money to help people play sport and take part in physical activity.

In addition to the regular funding streams, which have been affected by the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis, Sport England have opened a £16.5m Return to Play Fund.

There are three parts to this new fund - Small Grants and the Community Asset Fund, which have been adapted from pre-coronavirus funds, and Active Together crowdfunding, which has been extended - with all three now focusing on a safe return to play and narrowing the inequalities gap in sport and physical activity.

They'll do this by supporting groups and organisations working with Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups, people on lower incomes, those disproportionately affected financially as a result of the pandemic, disabled people and people with long-term health conditions, and those experiencing a greater burden of care responsibilities since the pandemic began.
