Apply for a grant

Clubs in Crisis Fund

We are pleased to be able to offer a further round of funding, in partnership with Made By Sport to offer local sports clubs and organisations the opportunity to apply for a grant which can help support young people (up to 25 Years) as they start to recover from the effects of previous lockdowns.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on young people across the UK, and thanks to Made By Sport, we can offer this chance for sports clubs and organisations to access vital funding which can help them to continue bringing sport into young people’s lives.

Made By Sport is a charity which raises awareness of the power of sport and funding for organisations that use sport to support young people across the UK. The ‘Clubs In Crisis’ fund is part of a wider campaign that believes sport is the best vehicle for creating societal change for young people across a myriad of challenges they face in the modern world.


How much can I apply for and what kind of projects will be funded?  

We’ll be administering the fund on behalf of Made By Sport and awarding unrestricted grants of £2,021* to clubs or organisations who match the criteria.

*We may be able to offer a handful of slightly larger grants (up to £5K), but please seek advice before you apply.

The fund is looking for applications from clubs and community organisations using sport to improve young people’s lives through one or more of the following means:

  • Developing life skills
  • Building strong communities
  • Improving mental health
  • Developing employability skills
  • Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour
