Sport England launches £16.5 million Return to Play fund

Sport England has launched a Return to Play fund for local groups, clubs and organisations who’ve been impacted by restrictions brought in to tackle Covid-19. The £16.5 million fund is designed to give additional help to the sport and physical activity sector during the coronavirus pandemic.

The fund will be split into three parts:

  1. Small Grants - This will provide grants of between £300 and £10,000 to help sport and activity groups, clubs and organisations respond to the immediate challenges of returning to play in a Covid-19-safe environment.

  2. Community Asset Fund - This will provide grants ranging in value from £10,001 to £50,000. It’ll help local sports clubs and organisations to adapt and open important places and spaces that can help them welcome back their local community safely. 

  3. Active Together - This crowdfunding initiative will help sports clubs and organisations set up their own campaigns to help sustain them through the crisis.
