Our Community Sports programme allows not-for-profit sports groups to apply for set packages of goods, which are then distributed to successful applicants.

Going forward, the programme will focus on specific themes and target groups of individuals which have traditionally lower levels of participation in team sports.

The next round will run during Thursday November 3rd - Thursday November 17th*, allowing new or existing over 50s team sports projects to apply for set packages of kit & equipment.

*Please note that this was initially advertised 20th Oct-3rd Nov, but has been delayed owing to technical difficulties. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

Individuals within older age groups traditionally have much lower levels of participation in sports and excercise - specifically within a team environment.

Our set packages of goods will enable consituted groups and charities to apply for kit and equipment to address this. This will include the following:

  • Football (inc. 11s & 6-a-side)
  • Rugby
  • Netball
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Bowls (inc. crown green & flat bowls)

When open, the form will allow you to select the relevant colours and sizes for any clothing included. 

In the meantime, all applicants must read the Guidance Notes - which provide detail about eligibility criteria and the application process. Also below are specific details about the kit & equipment:

Please note we do not require individuals/organisations to contact us in advance of an application to declare an initial expression of interest.
