Inspired Facilities

An easy guide to Inspired Facilities

The application window for the current round of Inspired Facilities will close on 3 November. If you are not ready to submit please do not rush your application as the dates for further rounds will be announced within the next few weeks.

Inspired Facilities is our £110 million programme that funds the renovation and modernisation of local sports facilities.

To date we have helped over 1,300 projects to improve and refurbish sports clubs or transform non-sporting venues into modern grassroots sport facilities. So whether you are a club, local authority, school or parish council we could help you improve your facilities.

As a result of feedback from previous applicants, we have changed the application process for Inspired Facilities. It is now an open programme which means that you can submit your application as soon as you are ready rather than having to rush to send it in by a specific date.

Decision meetings will then take place twice a year, the first one of these will be in September 2014 when all applications received prior to the 9 June by 5pm will be assessed. The second will take place in February 2015 for applications received before 3 November 5pm. Please note only one application per organisation can be considered at each decision meeting.
