In detail

This programme covers the provision or upgrading of all facilities for the general community. In the main, proposals will be led by local authorities, clubs, trusts and the like. 

This funding stream funds developments that are for the public good and will provide equitable opportunities for increased sports participation by the community at local level.

Priority will be given to projects that have established/will establish with the sports programmes and/or initiatives operated by the local authority, national governing body for sport and their associates/partners.

Applicants need to demonstrate that the proposed development is for the public good and will provide equitable opportunities for increased sports participation by the community at local level.

This funding stream is for capital expenditure only. We distribute this in accordance with the Government’s policy directions for lottery and funds for capital expenditure on sports projects which benefit the community. We cannot fund projects that are already underway, where building contracts are already let.
