UK Sport and Sport England have agreed a Code for Sports Governance in order to protect the public's investment into sport and activity. The code applies to all organisations within the UK to whom Sport England provides funding. Find out more in our written guidance or watch the webinar below.
Sport England have always tried to address inequalities through their funding and encourage projects that support people who have poorer health outcomes and lower activity levels and each year invest more than £250 million of National Lottery and public money to help people play sport and be active. Funding streams change, so look to their website for explanations of what is currently open, and how to find the right fund for you.
