Return to Play Fund launched

 Sport England has launched a new £16.5 million fund to provide additional help to the sport and physical activity sector during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. 

The Return to Play Fund will support groups, clubs and organisations who’ve been impacted by restrictions brought in to tackle the disease, and is part of our overall response to the crisis that now includes more than £220m of government and National Lottery funding.

The fund will especially seek to support those groups and organisations working with audiences Sport England has identified as finding it more difficult to be active at this time.

These include:
  • Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities
  • people on lower incomes
  • those disproportionately affected financially as a result of the crisis
  • disabled people and people with long-term health conditions
  • those who are experiencing a greater burden of care responsibilities since the pandemic began.

The fund, which will welcome applications from today, is made up of three parts:
  • £10m - Return to Play: Small Grants
  • £5m - Return to Play: Community Asset Fund
  • £1.5m - Return to Play: Active Together
