Funding to Encourage Less Active People to Become More Active (England)

Grants of up to £15,000 are available to charities, voluntary and community groups, local authorities, clubs, schools, and other not-for-profit organisations delivering sports and physical activities to improve the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged communities in England. Schools are eligible to apply if their sports facilities are open for use by the wider community. The funding is made available through Sport England’s Small Grants Programme which aims to encourage inactive and less active people, regardless of age, background, or level of ability, to become more active. Funding could be used for coaching, volunteer training, service and facility alterations, and equipment. Sport England is also particularly keen to support projects seeking to reduce their impact on the environment through the goods and services they use to deliver the activity. Applications can be submitted until the 31st March 2024.
