Sport England Small Grants Programme returns with awards of up to £15,000

The fund will prioritise funding projects that can make the biggest difference to people that need it most

Sport England Grants Programme can now give 50% larger awards to help communities get active after the maximum grant amount was increased to £15,000 for 2023.

The Small Grants Programme was put on hold for a year in 2022, however now Small Grants has returned and the award limit has been upped from £10,000 to £15,000 in order to provide sport and physical activities for people who may be less physically active. 

Applications can be made for awards of between £300 and £15,000, with multiple applications permitted but organisations can only have awards totaling £15,000 or less in any 12-month period.

Only not-for-profit organisations are eligible for the programme and applications should explain the need for the project as well as how end users have been involved in its development.

In addition to this, submissions should consider how the project adds value to services currently available in their community, and show how the organisation will collaborate with other groups to maximise the project’s impact.

The closing date for applications to the programme is 30 June.
