Clubs in Crisis Fund

The fund opens on 12 April 2021 and there is no specific deadline.

The sooner you apply the better because they expect high demand.

The funding is for sport clubs or organisations working within the sport for development sector, which are able to demonstrate that the Covid-19 pandemic has adversely affected their organisation, either operationally or financially, and which require funding to save, resume, or adapt their activity.

In order to be eligible, clubs must provide clear evidence of how they use sport to help young people develop life skills, employment opportunities, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, or tackle mental health issues.

The funding in the local area of Leicester and Leicestershire will be administered Leicestershire & Rutland Community Foundation. At this stage, details of the fund have not been uploaded to their webpage, but we anticipate that it will be described on this section of their webpage when the fund opens.

In the meantime, you can find out more details by accessing the made by sport webpage:
