Help for recognised sports

As well as directly funding many national governing bodies of sport, we also provide additional support to over a hundred more that we recognise

Although we currently do not fund the governing bodies of these other recognised governing bodies through our whole sport plans, we realise there is great potential for more people to play these sports, so have created support and resources to help them.

Any recognised sport can apply to our different funding streams and can access valuable information on how to better understand and interact with people who play their sport or who want to play it in future.

Furthermore, we provide information on how an NGB can improve their governance to help them become fit for purpose and increase recognition within the community sport system in England.

We have also worked with the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) to create a website which provides a wide range of safeguarding advice and resources to support sports organisations in keeping children safe. Visit the CPSU website.

Other organisations that can help you include the Sport and Recreation Alliance (SRA) and the county sports partnerships network (CSPN)
