Sport England’s Community Asset Fund offers grants of between £1,000 – £50,000 to community organisations, sports clubs, statutory bodies and educational establishments to enhance local community spaces which encourage people to play sport and get active. The programme aims to:
- Improve and protect existing sports facilities that support the needs of local communities
- Invest in new and different places that meet the needs of local communities
- Ensure Sport England’s capital investment reaches organisations that have not accessed Sport England’s funding before.
- Create a more resilient, sustainable, less grant dependent sport sector.
Sport England offer two award scales. These are:
Small-scale investments typically ranging from £1,000 to £15,000
These will address emergency works due to something like storm or ood damage, or something totally unexpected that is stopping people from being able to stay active right now.
Medium-scale investments typically ranging from between £15,000 to £50,000
These will address more substantial changes. This might be an upgrade to an existing facility or developing a new space in the community.
By exception, Sport England will consider larger investments ranging from £50,000 to £150,000. This will be when organisations can demonstrate a considerable impact or are targeting under-represented groups. They are also unlikely to have received funding from Sport England previously.
Deadline: Continuous rolling programme.
