Funding for projects that encourage participation in sports


Local Giving and Postcode Community Trust are offering grants of up to £500 to projects that support and inspire people to participate in sports or exercise with the primary aim of improving the physical health of participants. The fund will be awarding over 900 grants to community projects across Great Britain.

Coronavirus Update

  1. Organisations now have longer than 12 months to spend the grant and we do not require specific dates for projects that you would like us to support. We want our funding to be able to be used flexibly and trust that you will deliver projects only when it is safe to do so.
  2. We are happy to support projects that support people to stay active during social distancing, such as online fitness classes delivered via video conferencing software or Youtube.
