Return to Play: Active Together
Active Together is a crowdfunding initiative that can match fund, up to £10,000, successful Crowdfunder campaigns from a total pot of £1.5m.
With expert advice and guidance to support you, this will help local clubs and organisations to run their own crowdfunding campaigns, fundraising for things such as a loss of income due to the crisis, or any other Covid-19 related needs.
Community Leisure Recovery Fund
The Community Leisure Recovery Fund aimed to support community-run leisure facilities with £5m of National Lottery investment to assist the reopening and recovery of their services.
It was an open fund allocated over a single funding round in April and covers the period from 1 April to 30 September 2021.
Please note, this fund is now closed.

Got a Great Idea?
If you could do with a little help but none of our other open funds seem applicable, then you can always just tell us your great idea.
Forget about the application process for now, simply tell us your idea - including ones to help the sport and physical activity sector through the coronavirus crisis - and we'll let you know if it's something we can help you with.
Even if we can't fund you there are other ways we can help, so let's start talking.
Strategic Facilities Fund
Our Strategic Facilities Fund is designed to support the sector to invest strategically so it delivers the outcomes essential to local communities.
This programme is not open via an application process. We work with local authorities and our expert partners to ensure the right major capital projects are in the right places to support our strategic outcomes.
Other ways to generate funding
There are a number of other sources of funding that organisations can apply to and should consider in addition to the programmes we have available.
Find out more about the traditional sources of funding and social sector opportunities out there.
Emergency flood relief funding
If your facilities were damaged by Storms Ciara or Darcy, you could be eligible for emergency flood relief funding.
Please note, this fund will be paused to new applications from 5pm on Friday 30 April.
We evaluate our investment programmes to gather learning that improves outcomes for existing and future projects. Evaluation reports show and explain impact and return on investment, increase our insight and support advocacy for further sport investment.
We've designed an Evaluation Framework to help our colleagues and partners to evaluate funding streams and projects effectively, and to get maximum value from measurement and evaluation.
