Funding to help sector
We’re making up to £195 million of funding available to help the sport and physical activity sector through the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
One part of this, our £20m Community Emergency Fund, is now open to applications from organisations experiencing short term financial hardship or the ceasing of operations.

Sport England and the National Lottery
By playing the National Lottery, you're helping people across England play sport and get physically active. That's because two-thirds of our funding comes from the lottery. Thank you to everyone who has ever bought a ticket for supporting us in building a healthier, happier nation.
