Sport England has relaxing a few rules about what they can’t fund, and are trying to make it as simple as possible to apply to their Small Grants programme.
The focus of your application should be what difference your project will make, not what you purchase to make it happen.
They also want to know how many new participants will be involved.
One of the main differences made to this fund, is that 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. They are also happy to contribute funding to bigger projects.
You can request grants up to £10K for revenue related expenditure and new / additional movable equipment. Sport England may make slightly larger awards in exception circumstance only.
Sport England will also be doing more to support organisations which are able to support inactive people become active
