Sport England – Supporting The Sector

As part of delivering on these priorities, Sport England want to offer some specific reassurances to any individual or organisation who receives funding, or any other type of support from them, for their work.

They have significant concerns about the impact coronavirus will have financially on certain partners and they are looking at options that will help to mitigate this.

They are exploring a number of ideas, for example opening up applications to their Small Grants scheme to those that have lost income – modelled on their successful Flood Relief Fund – and allowing extensions of existing grants for those already in receipt of funding who have a critical funding shortfall.

In addition to this, they are continuing to work with many of you to understand the ongoing and future impact of coronavirus and they want to make sure that whatever action they take has the greatest positive impact. So, Sport England want to hear from you now about the issues you’re facing and to take on board these ideas and concerns to feed into their plans.

Please contact them via and let them know:

  • How coronavirus is impacting you or your organisation
  • The type of help you think would be most beneficial.

Please keep in touch with them via the above email address as you or your club’s situation changes.
