..a 195m package.

Sport England have today announced a £195m package to help sports and physical activity through coronavirus. This funding will help clubs and community organisations cope with the short and long term impact of the pandemic.

The Community Emergency Fund (£300-£10,000)

....aims to deliver immediate funding to those most in need. It's specifically targeted at organisations, including those not currently supported by us, who have a role in supporting the nation to be active but who are experiencing short term financial hardship or the ceasing of operations due to the ongoing crisis. The types of organisations eligible include local sports clubs forced to close at short notice but who are facing ongoing costs around maintenance and utility bills, and voluntary and community sector organisations who deliver or enable sport and physical activity. The fund has been developed to help community sport and physical activity organisations meet their obligations, in particular fixed costs, which are no longer supported with revenue as a result of coronavirus. This might cover expenditure on:

  • Rent , Utility costs, Insurances, Facility or equipment hire, Core staffing costs (including casual workers) that cannot be met elsewhere by other government funds, Retrospective losses dating from 1 March, 2020.
  • Some examples of the sort of things our fund can help with are: 
  • Support a boxing club to pay for their utility bills and other costs for their facility when no activity is taking place 
  • Support a local league who have paid for equipment to run a competition which is now cancelled and therefore will not receive the money the players in the league would have paid.
