Community Asset Fund

New guide to help you start to develop your idea and prepare your application for our Community Asset Fund

Whether it’s the park you run through, the hall you do classes in or the pitch you play on, welcoming and accessible spaces have a big impact on a person’s experience – and likelihood of coming back.

From 30 January 2017, sports clubs and community organisations will be able to apply for investment from our Community Asset Fund – our new capital fund dedicated to enhancing the spaces in your local community that give people the opportunity to be active.

As part of this, we have produced a guide and accompanying document to tell you more about the fund, how and why we’re doing things differently, when we will make decisions plus tips and advice for developing your project or idea.

As well as traditional sports facilities where people enjoy physical activity, there are thousands of outdoor spaces up and down the country – like canal towpaths, woodlands and open spaces – all with great potential to be used and enjoyed as part of an active lifestyle.

We’re keen to hear from any sports club or community organisation with a great idea that will make a difference to the places where people play sport and get active.

You might already own or lease a facility in the local community, are considering taking over some grounds or a facility that has the potential to be used for sport and leisure. We’re keen to hear from all of you.

Even if you haven’t accessed funding before – it doesn’t matter. We want to invest in your great ideas that will help get people active.
