Sport England Small Grants

Back to Grants

The Sport England Small Grants utilise lottery funding to support not-for-profit organisations, in benefiting people who participate and continue to play sport.

Their mission is to get more people playing more sport more often, and for people to take up a full-time sporting activity.
