The Sport England Small Grants Programme
Did you know?
You can apply for any sum from £300 to £10,000 but the total project cost cannot exceed £50,000
The Sport England Small Grants Programme has been set up to support local community sport projects which seek to increase participation, sustain participation or develop opportunities for people to excel at their chosen sport.
For example, we might help a sports club expand its age range by helping it to buy extra team kit or pay additional coaching fees. Or we may help youth clubs work together with local sports clubs to get more young people playing sport.
Who can apply?
It is open to any bona fide not-for-profit club or association, statutory body or educational establishment.
