Sport England's Return to Play Small Grants Fund - Still Open

This fund makes awards to help sport and activity groups, clubs and organisations respond to the immediate challenges of returning to play in a coronavirus-safe way.

This could include contributing to covering the costs incurred by having to deliver activity in smaller groups than normal, or having the correct hygiene and safety equipment.

  • Organisations based in Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) 1-5 (was 1 -3) can seek support towards ongoing running costs - for example rent, utilities and insurance. This is capped at a maximum of £3,000 and will only be considered with an eligible funding request. They won't solely support only running costs.
  • Eligible organisations/activities in IMD 6-10 locations can apply to our crowdfunding option, Return to Play: Active Together, to seek support towards running costs.
  • Flexibility over start date - they ask that activity resumes within six weeks of national/local lockdown restrictions being lifted,

Grants are up to £10K.

They can fund a wide range of costs and items specifically linking to returning to play including:

  • Minor facility alterations
  • Service alterations
  • Operational alterations
  • Running costs

This fund is now open up to 30 June.
