These grant funding opportunities may be appropriate for a wide range of projects related to sport and physical activity.

Derbyshire County Council Action Grants

The Action Grants programme is helping groups with good ideas to make their communities better places to live. Groups from all parts of Derbyshire (excluding Derby) are able to apply. Money is available for schemes that encourage residents of all ages to take part in physical activities, keep fit and stay healthy - or those that encourage people to get active if they're not already.

The final deadline for this grant opportunity is 31st May 2020. Have a look at the funding tutorials below to make sure you are well prepared to submit a good application to this fund.

National Lottery Communities Fund - Awards for All

Awards for All offers grants up to £10K for up to 1 year. This fund might be suitable for small capital or revenue projects. They have three funding priorities which are:

  • bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities
  • improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
  • help more people to reach their potential, by supporting them at the earliest possible stage.

Your funding application should address at least one of these priorities.

The short presentation below gives you the key facts about the Awards for All programme.
