About Made By Sport

We’re delighted to have teamed up with Made By Sport to offer local sports clubs and organisations the opportunity to apply for a grant which can help support young people as they start to recover from the effects of the latest lockdown. We are also really pleased to be partnering with Active Gloucestershire who are supporting us with the delivery of this programme.

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 the best vehicle for creating societal change for young people across a range of challenges they face in modern life.

We’ll be administering the fund on behalf of Made By Sport and awarding unrestricted of grants of £2,021 to clubs who match the criteria. The fund is looking for 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

How much can you apply for?

The programme will invite applications of £2,021.  If you organisation requires a smaller grant please do apply for the amount you need.

Deadline for application submissions

Applications for the first round of the Made By Sport programme open on 12th April 2021 and will close on 14th May 2021.  Applicants will be notified of the decision before the end of June 2021. Depending upon funds remaining, a second funding round will open for applications up until 27th August 2021.  The sooner you apply the better as we expect high demand for the funding and we only have a certain amount of funding to award.
