Funding available: Between £25,000-£150,000
Funding Cycle: 1 August 2011 to 17 September 2012
£50million for Inspired Facilities
Investment will be available to breathe new life into tired facilities that can be unattractive to sports participants, expensive to run and difficult to maintain, putting these clubs right back at the heart of their local communities. There will also be money available to convert existing buildings into venues that are suitable for grassroots sport.
Typical investments might be:
A sprung floor that converts an unused hall into a local multi-sport facility
New changing rooms, so away teams no longer need to change in the car park
New floodlights that mean a facility can be used for many more hours of the day
At least £35 million of the funding will go to community and voluntary organisations, through grants of between £20,000 and £50,000. The remaining money will be open to a wider group of organisations, including councils and schools, with grants of up to £150,000 available.
Applicants whose project will benefit disadvantaged young people will also be invited to apply for funding from the Thomas Cook’s Children’s Charity.
Applications opened 1st August 2011, the next round is Round 3 which opens: 23 July 2012 to 17 September 2012
Rounds four and five will take place in 2013/14 and the dates will be announced once the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have taken place.
