Sport England Launches Opportunity Fund (England)

As part of its new strategy for volunteering, “Volunteering in an active Nation”, Sport England has announced the launch of the Opportunity Fund.

Grants of up to £50,000 per year for up to three years are available for projects that deliver new volunteering and social action opportunities for people over the age of 20 that live in economically disadvantaged communities. These could range from inner-city areas with high levels of crime and social exclusion to remote rural areas with few services. The Fund aims to get more people active across England and recognises the importance of volunteering in changing the lives of those giving their time and its importance in helping to get others active. The fund involves a two stage application process, and is open to any organisation that can demonstrate their ability to deliver quality volunteering opportunities.

The deadline for initial expressions of interest is the 24th April 2017.
