What we do

Sport England is focused on helping people and communities across the country create a sporting habit for life.

We will invest over £1 billion of National Lottery and Exchequer funding between 2012 and 2017 in organisations and projects.

We also have a role protecting sports provision and must be formally consulted on any English planning applications that affect playing fields.
