Sport England use National Lottery funding to make awards from £300 to £10,000 to not-for-profit organisations to help more people get active

The Small Grants programme aims to support this by offering funding to projects involving adults and young people aged 14 or over which meet one or more of the aims of our ‘Towards an Active Nation’ strategy:

  • Get inactive people to become more active
  • Develop lasting sporting habits
  • Engender more positive attitudes among young people
  • Develop more diverse volunteers
  • Improve progression and inclusion among the most talented
  • Projects working with mixed age groups may still be considered if there is a focus on people aged 14 and over.

You can apply if your organisation is a not-for-profit, voluntary or community club or organisation, registered charity, not-for-profit company or community interest company. Organisations established to make a profit may apply provided that the project does not realise a distributable profit.

Other social enterprises, schools or statutory bodies are also eligible.

APPLICATION NEWS:

Our approach to Small Grants has changed – we want to make applying for funding as simple as possible and for the Small Grants programme to have the greatest possible impact in communities across England, in line with our strategy.

The application form should now be easier to complete and we have relaxed a few rules about what we cannot fund. The focus of your application should be what difference your project will make, not what you purchase to make it happen.

For example, it will no longer matter if your project takes more than 12 months to deliver and you can spread your funding over three years, if required. We will also be happy to contribute our funding to bigger projects. Please read our new guide for more information.
