Sport England has announced that the first funding round of its Families Fund is now open for applications.
A total of £10 million is 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.
