Sport England - Storm Relief Funding

Aims/priorities: Funding is intended to support the repair and recovery of community sports facilities from flood and storm damage to allow them to reopen as soon as possible. 

Grants can be used to:

  • Repair storm-damaged buildings and roofs.
  • Grass and artificial pitches.
  • Decontaminate flooded clubhouses.
  • Replace damaged electrical systems or clear blocked drains.

Funding may also cover the hire of skips, pressure hoses or tarpaulins to secure exposed buildings (for use when safe to do so).

Who can apply? Voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations and public bodies may apply as long as they are in charge of the damaged community facility.

The following are not eligible for funding:

  • Damages covered by an insurance policy.
  • Loss of income or routine damage incurred as a result of everyday wear and tear.

Grant amount: Up to £15,000.

Application process: Full guidance and the online application form can be found on the Sport England website. Groups should apply using the Queen's Jubilee Platinum Activity Fund form using the project reference 'Storm 22' and including a picture of the damaged facility.

Deadline:  Applications can be submitted at any time. Decisions are expected in around ten days.
