Sport England Active Together funding available for clubs
Sport England has teamed up with Crowdfunder to make £7.5 million of match funding available to help the sport and physical activity sector to recover, reinvent and build resilience following the pandemic
Active Together is £7.5 million fund, with up to £10,000 in match funding, that’s part of a support package to help clubs and organisations set up and run crowdfunding campaigns related to the ongoing impact of Covid-19, as well as the emerging energy, cost of living or other local crises – such as adverse weather.
It is encouraging not-for-profit organisations, who play an important role in keeping their community physically active, to get involved.
The fund is directed at organisations that have experienced financial difficulties due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions, the energy crisis, the increased cost of living or because of any other local difficulties, including those wanting to adapt how they operate post-pandemic.
Active Together can support eligible organisations with projects including installing energy efficiency measures, such as solar panels or LED lighting.
