The £8 Million Inclusive Sport Fund has been set up by Sport England to produce a lasting community legacy from the London 2012 Paralympic Games by growing sports participation of disabled people at grassroots level. The fund will invest in programmes designed to grow the number of disabled young people (age 14+) and adults that regularly play sport, it must increase participation for individuals not currently accessing sport and/or show how physical activities link into sport.
Sport England are keen to develop partnerships at a local level with groups not previously funded.
Applications will be accepted from not-for-profit organisations such as sports clubs, voluntary and community organisations, local authorities, schools and colleges for revenue grants of £10,001 or more.
