This new fund aims to help community sport and physical activity organisations who are experiencing short term financial hardship or the ceasing of operations due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Awards will be between £300 and £10,000. In exceptional circumstances Sport England will consider awards of more than £10,000.
The organisations that can apply include:
- Local sports clubs;
- Voluntary and community sector organisations that deliver or enable sport and/or physical activity, including organisations that are not solely or primarily sports organisations and have an important role to play in keeping people active, that may need support for other parts of their organisation to remain open;
- Small charitable trusts that do not qualify for financial help elsewhere;
- Regional or county level organisations or leagues that have already paid out funds for activities that are now cancelled and are not able to claim funds from elsewhere.
