To commemorate the Coronation in 2023, Sport England has widened its Small Grants programme to include two areas which are of personal interest to His Majesty the King.

As well as providing funding to encourage greater participation in sport and physical activity, the programme will also award grants of up to £15,000 for projects that focus on sustainable activities while reducing the impact on the environment, such as

  • purchasing locally made equipment or using local community assets to minimise travel;
  • and projects which focus on developing skills in young people. This could include supporting them through coaching qualifications or trying new sessions to bring new participants into a club.

Voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations, schools and local authorities have until the 30th June 2023 to submit their applications.
