A £5 million pot for our existing partners to bid into if they’re facing specific financial difficulty

An additional £55 million to support our sector during an ongoing period of restrictions, to fund new and innovative ways to keep people active and, when the period of restrictions 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 long term certainty to over 100 well-established partners who play a vital role in the delivery of sport and physical activity in England.
