Tim Hollingsworth, Chief Executive of Sports England has announced a support package of up to £195 million available to help meet the needs of those responsible for the activity of the nation.
This package consists of:
- A new £20 million Community Emergency Fund, which is open now for local club and community organisations to bid for grants between £300 and £10,000.
- A new £5 million fund for existing Sport England partners facing specific and immediate financial difficulty.
- £55 million put aside to support the sector during an ongoing period of restrictions; to fund new and innovative ways to keep people active and then, when it is over, to help organisations get back to business and adjust to a different environment.
- A £115 million rollover of current funding into 2021/22 to give certainty to over 100 well established partners who play a vital role in the delivery of sport and physical activity in England, and whose current funding agreements with Sport England run out in March 2021.
