Funding for sport

Sport England Community Asset Fund

Sport England’s Community Asset Fund is a capital fund dedicated to enhancing the spaces in your local community.

Whether it’s the park you run through, the hall you do classes in or the pitch you play on, welcoming and accessible spaces have a big impact on a person’s sport and activity experience – and likelihood of coming back.

As well as traditional sports facilities where people enjoy physical activity, there are thousands of outdoor spaces up and down the country – like canal towpaths, woodlands and open spaces – all with great potential to be used and enjoyed as part of an active lifestyle.

Sport England are keen to hear from any sports club or community organisation with a great idea that will make a difference to the places where people play sport and get active.

You might already own or lease a facility in the local community, are considering taking over some grounds or a facility that has the potential to be used for sport and leisure. They are keen to hear from all of you.
