Funding to Make Playing Football More Accessible at Grassroots Level - Watch this Space

Barclays, in partnership with Sported has launched a new fund to make playing football more accessible at grassroots level.

Through the Barclays Community Football Fund, 5,550 community groups across the UK wishing to start offering football or expand their existing provision, will receive grants and additional support to develop inclusive football activities.

The fund will primarily support girls and young people in deprived or underrepresented areas through local organisations to reduce inequalities in the participation of sport and physical activity. This includes culturally diverse communities, young people with disabilities, and young people from the LGBTQ+ community.

Further details will be announced in due course.
