Sport England Community Emergency Fund


Help for clubs experiencing financial hardship due to the coronavirus crisis.

This new fund aims to help community sport clubs, including cricket clubs who are experiencing short term financial hardship or the ceasing of operations due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.


What they will fund

The fund has been developed to help clubs meet their obligations, in particular fixed costs, which are no longer supported with revenue as a result of coronavirus. This might cover expenditure on:

  • Rent
  • Utility costs
  • Insurances
  • Facility or equipment hire
  • Core staffing costs (including casual workers) that cannot be met elsewhere by other government funds
  • Retrospective losses dating from 1 March, 2020


What the funding can’t be used for

Funding cannot be used for:

  • Activities or costs which are already covered by other government funding, including rates
  • New activities or events – see our other funding programmes
  • Capital works
  • Costs beyond the end of July 2020


How much they will fund

Awards between £300 and £10,000.
