Sport England has revealed details for a £360m investment round, which will see 78 organisations receive funding towards their projects to get people more active. The funding comes on the back of the £193m investment in 43 partners Sport England announced in March and brings the total funding dished out by the grassroots organisation to more than £550m across 121 partners.
The organisations receiving funding range from NGBs and leisure operators to charities and other industry bodies, with each given investments for up to five years, in order to provide longer-term financial security.
Among those to receive funding in the latest around are The FA (£26.1m), Basketball England (£8.58m), Sport for Confidence (£1.34m), UK Coaching (£10m) and the Youth Sport Trust (£17m).
Sport England CEO, Tim Hollingsworth, said: “At the heart of our strategy Uniting the Movement is a relentless focus on tackling inequalities to help everyone get active – no matter who they are, where they live, or what their background is.
“We cannot do this alone, and that’s why we are building a movement of partners that share our goal to level-up access to sport and physical activity.
“They are well-positioned to create the conditions for positive change in society and we will support them to do that; through investment, through research, through collaboration and innovation.”
