This article provides information on different streams of funding for sports clubs and organisation.
Sport England Small Grants is a funding stream that uses Lottery funding to make awards of between £300 and £10,000 to not-for-profit organisations to help more people play sport. If you have an idea for a project that is focused on increasing sports participation, delivered to beneficiaries based in England and is a new activity then you may be able to apply for funding.
Awards for All is another source of funding for sports clubs that gives groups an easy way to get small Lottery grants of between £300 and £10,000. Awards for All are keen to fund projects that can address a need for something, the issues surrounding the local community and how this project will benefit the people that will be engaged. They are looking to fund a variety of community programmes that are aimed at improving the health of local people, improving the local environment and helping people to become more active.
