Clubs in Crisis Fund
Created: 30/04/2021, Updated: 21/09/2021
The Clubs in Crisis Fund from Made by Sport supports sports clubs and organisations delivering sport for development who have been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a national fund being delivered locally by community foundations across the UK. Foundation Scotland is distributing all funding across Scotland.
The fund aims to support sports clubs and organisations that deliver sport for development to recover from the pandemic's impact and continue their work to achieve social outcomes through sport. Specifically, the fund is looking to supporting sports clubs and organisations that intentionally deliver wider social outcomes through sport. These outcomes must fall into one or more of the following categories::
Developing life skills
Building strong communities
Improving mental health
Developing employability skills
Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour
Funding is unrestricted but should clearly meet the criteria of delivering sport for development for young people. All funding for Round 3 must be spent by successful applicants by March 2022.
Who can apply?
Open to registered sports clubs who are based and operate in the UK. It will support clubs who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19, support young people aged 5-25, and who can demonstrate they are delivering sport for development work. Smaller clubs and organisations with an income of under £75,000 a year will be prioritised, but larger groups are now also eligible to apply.
The next deadline is 25 October 2021 for a decision in December.For more information/to make an application, please click here.
