Sport England has launched a new £20 million Fund to help sports and community organisations delivering physical activities who are experiencing short term financial hardship due to the Coronavirus crisis.
This can include rent payments, utility costs, insurances, core staffing costs, etc. The types of organisations eligible to apply include local sports clubs forced to close at short notice but who are facing ongoing costs around maintenance and utility bills, and voluntary and community sector organisations who deliver or enable sport and physical activity.
Awards will be between £300 and £10,000. In exceptional circumstances Sport England will consider awards of more than £10,000.
Applicants should have exhausted all other government funding sources before applying to this fund.
Sport England expect that the Fund will be open until the 31st July 2020.
