Sport England Families Fund to Open for Applications (England)
Sport England has announced that the first funding round of its Families Fund will open for applications on the 6th July 2017. A total of £10 million will be available for sports projects that focus on families with children aged 5-15, with a particular emphasis on low income families and families living in areas of high deprivation. Sport England are looking to fund organisations, both sporting and non-sporting, who understand children and families and have a proven track record of working with them. Potential examples include housing associations, family-focused charities, parent support organisations and outdoor activity providers. The anticipated size of funding for projects from our Families Fund will be from £50,000 up to £500,000 for the right project. The closing date for applications will be the 31st August 2017 at 3pm.
