Sport England are launching a new funding in December


The places where people play sport have a really big impact on a person’s experience and likelihood they will come back regularly. That’s why we’re continuing to invest in all types of facilities, especially multi-sport for our major strategic investments.

£7.5mof funding for facilities launching in December

In December 2016, we will:

  • Launch the first phase of our new Community Asset Fund. If you’re an organisation looking to take over sports facilities, a sports club that wants to expand or you have a great idea for a project that’s clearly needed in the local community, then this could be the fund for you. £7.5 million will be available for single and multi-sport community facilities in this phase.

Based on similar projects we’ve already supported, we expect to make awards of between £5,000 and £150,000. You’ll be able to submit your bids from the beginning of January 2017. We plan to make the first awards from April 2017 onwards.

It might be that your facilities project is already right for one of our open funding programmes, like our Strategic Facilities Fund. Find out more here.

In January 2017, we will:

  • Publish our wider facilities investment guide, giving partners more information on the type of projects we’re looking to support, the people we want to benefit and the outcomes we’re seeking to achieve.
