Sport England grants on offer to grow participation

16 November 2011

Sport England, the government agency responsible for building the foundations for sporting success in the UK, is offering not-for-profit organisations the opportunity to grab a grant of between £300 and £10,000.

The Sport England Small Grants programme is available to not-for-profit organisations, such as sports clubs and voluntary schemes, to deliver new community projects to grow or sustain participation in sport.

Typical projects that Sport England will provide grants for include, after school clubs, sports taster sessions and the creation of new sports clubs.

With an annual fund of £7m, the programme accepts applicants throughout the year and has a success rate of approximately 50%. In the first two quarters of 2011-12, Sport England awarded £2.9m, with 35 of the 2009-13 funded sports receiving grants.

Kellogg’s and the ASA are also offering organisations the opportunity to apply for a grant to drive aquatic activity in their local area, through the Kellogg’s Swim Active programme. The closing date for applications is Thursday 1st December 2011, click here for further information.

Organisations that have received grants from external sponsors, such as Kellogg’s Swim Active, can also apply for Sport England funding through the Sportsmatch scheme. Sport England will match between £1,000 and £100,000 for community projects that can demonstrate that they will grow or sustain sports participation.
