Funding for women’s sport

Women and girls have been added as a priority demographic to Sport England’s Small Grants fund. 

Up to £10,000 in funding is available through the Small Grants fund to support clubs and community groups to respond to the challenges of returning to play during and following the coronavirus pandemic, and to help them be more effective in helping people be active as we emerge.

Several insight resources were published by national organisations such as Sport England and Women in Sport that highlighted the impact of the pandemic on women’s participation levels.

Take a look at the Covid-19 Insight and Women and Girls Insight sections on our website for more detailed information on how the pandemic impacted activity levels, motivations, and barriers.

Whether your organisation is big or small, and regardless of whether you operate in the sports sector or not, Sport England are encouraging more applications to support women to become or to stay physically active.
