All the options
We have a range of open funds that award National Lottery or government money to help the grassroots sport sector. Our funding section explains the different funds available and guides you through the application process.
Facilities and planning
It’s vital people have access to high-quality facilities and the area they live is designed in a way that encourages people to get active. We offer advice and support to help those involved in facility management and the planning system to achieve this.
National governing bodies guidance
Across England there are many different national governing bodies (NGBs) who have responsibility for managing their specific sport. Here we outline how our expertise helps NGBs across a range of issues, and give information on the sports and governing bodies we recognise.
We’re committed to ensuring that children and adults can enjoy sport and physical activity safe from harm, abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect. We have a range guidance to help support everyone in the sport sector to safeguard those at risk.
From knowing the law to providing the best support, we’ve compiled answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about volunteering, to help your organisation or project flourish while giving volunteers the best experience possible.
We know sports clubs provide a brilliant structure to get people playing sport but that running a club can be quite a difficult, and a sometimes thankless, task. Our Club Matters website has free guidance, support and learning on all aspects of running a club.
Many people’s first memories of taking part in sport are at school, and the experience they have can have a lasting impact on their attitude to physical activity for the rest of their lives. That’s why we offer free training to teachers to help foster a more positive attitude to PE in schools.
We want organisations to consider not just how they contribute to the nation’s health or wellbeing, but to the national and local economy as well. Our MOVES and Economic Value of Sport: Local Model tools help you do this.
