Grants of up to £50,000 are available for not-for-profit organisations to support community sport projects across Greater London that address the Mayor of London's five priority areas.
The new Sport Unites Fund will support community sport projects across Greater London that take place between summer 2021 and June 2022 that address either of the following two strands:
- New Ideas strand is aimed at community sport projects testing new and exciting ideas and/or to groups that have not received funding previously and would benefit from investment and support.
- Tried and Tested strand is for successful existing initiatives looking to expand their work.
The funding is intended to support projects using physical activity and sport to address at least one of the following five priorities:
- Helping the most inactive people be more active
- Improving people’s mental health and wellbeing
- Decreasing isolation/loneliness
- Strengthening connections in your local area and across communities
- Reducing serious youth violence
There are two different grant awards:
- Grants of up to £10,000 for New Ideas projects.
- Grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 for Tried and Tested projects.
The fund is expected to stay open until at least 12 November 2021.
