Clubs In Crisis sports fund launches

Sussex Community Foundation has teamed up with Made By Sport to offer local Sussex sports clubs and organisations the opportunity to apply for funding to support young people, as they move out of lockdown.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on young people across the UK, and thanks to Made By Sport, we can offer this chance for sports clubs and organisations to access vital funding which can help them to continue bringing sport into young people’s lives.

Made By Sport is a charity which raises awareness of the power of sport and funding for organisations that use sport to support young people across the UK. The ‘Clubs In Crisis’ fund is part of a wider campaign that believes sport is one of the best vehicles for creating societal change for young people across a myriad of challenges they face in the modern world.

We are administering the fund on behalf of Made By Sport and awarding unrestricted of grants of £2,021 to clubs who match the criteria. We are keen to receive applications from clubs and community organisations using sport to improve young people’s lives through one or more of the following means:

  • Developing life skills
  • Building strong communities
  • Improving mental health
  • Developing employability skills
  • Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour

The fund has its own application form here and criteria here

Key to the fund is that it supports clubs and organisations intentionally using community sport provision to deliver wider social outcomes, not those which focus on developing and widening opportunities to participate.
