MBS Clubs in Crisis Fund

Made by Sport (MBS) is a national charity which seeks to raise awareness of and provides funding for sport for development.

The MBS Clubs in Crisis Fund supports sports clubs or community organisations which deliver defined social outcomes for children and young people (aged five-25 years), by using sport for development (this includes any physical activity).  Applicants should be able to show that the Covid-19 pandemic has adversely affected their club or organisation, either operationally or financially, and therefore require funding to save, resume or adapt their activities.

The fund is open to UK-based:

  • charities
  • social enterprises and community interest companies
  • other not-for profit organisations e.g. sports club, unincorporated community groups etc.

Annual income (or turnover) should not exceed £75,000. Unrestricted grants of up to £2,021 are available and may be used towards match-funding.

The funding will support clubs and organisations demonstrating that they are using sport to work towards one or more of the following outcomes.

  • developing life skills
  • improving mental health
  • reducing crime and anti-social behaviour
  • developing employability skills
  • building stronger.

Deadline for applications Friday 9th June, 5pm and we expect to announce decisions on applications in mid-July. This fund has its own application form here. Full criteria is available here
