Sport England Scheme goes Nationwide!

Now with a pot of £7 million, the ‘Places and Spaces’ fund matches successful crowdfunding campaigns of up to £10,000 as organisations look to use Birmingham 2022 as a catalyst to improve places and spaces to get active.

Originally launched in November, with £3.5m to cater for organisations from the West Midlands, we’re now committing extra National Lottery funding to extend the fund across England and help community organisations make small-scale facility improvements that will help to develop places and spaces wanting to use Birmingham 2022 as a catalyst to improve community sport and physical activity.

“By making our Places and Spaces fund available nationally, and focusing on areas with the greatest need, we’re allowing organisations to provide brilliant new facilities in their local area to help tackle inequalities and allow everyone to enjoy sport and get active in outstanding environments.” – Sport England CEO, Tim Hollingsworth

Places and Spaces has been developed in partnership with Crowdfunder and will see Sport England award match funding of up to £10,000 so eligible applicants who run a successful community crowdfunding campaign.

In addition to providing the crowdfunding platform, Crowdfunder will also provide significant support to help organisations set up and run a successful rewards-based crowdfunding campaign that benefits their local community.
