£50million for Inspired Facilities

Share this page

Sport England has today launched a £50million programme refurbish and improve up to 1000 community sports clubs.

The Inspired Facilities fund is part of the Places People Play legacy programme that is bringing the magic of a home Olympic and Paralympic Games into communities across the country.
 
Investment will be available to breathe new life into tired facilities that can be unattractive to sports participants, expensive to run and difficult to maintain, putting these clubs right back at the heart of their local communities. There will also be money available to convert existing buildings into venues that are suitable for grassroots sport.
 
Typical investments might be:
 
A sprung floor that converts an unused hall into a local multi-sport facility
New changing rooms, so away teams no longer need to change in the car park
New floodlights that mean a facility can be used for many more hours of the day.
 
At least £35 million of the funding will go to community and voluntary organisations, through grants of between £20,000 and £50,000. The remaining money will be open to a wider group of organisations, including councils and schools, with grants of up to £150,000 available.
 
Applicants whose project will benefit disadvantaged young people will also be invited to apply for funding from the Thomas Cook’s Children’s Charity from August this year.
