New Grants Program – ‘Clubs in Crisis’

Made By Sport is a charity which raises awareness of the power of sport and funding for organisations that use sport to support young people across the UK. The ‘Clubs In Crisis’ fund is part of a wider campaign promoting  sport as one of the best ways of creating societal change for young people across many of they challenges they face today – and even more so as a result of Covid pandemic.

Sussex Community Foundation (SCF) will administer the fund locally on behalf of Made By Sport (MBS), awarding unrestricted grants of £2,021 to clubs and community organisations who match the criteria. The total size of the Fund for Sussex is around £90,000. Applications are encouraged from clubs and community organisations intentionally using sport to improve young people’s lives through one or more of the following outcomes:

  • Developing life skills
  • Building strong communities
  • Improving mental health
  • Developing employability skills
  • Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour

MBS have also indicated that their funding can be used by grantees as match funding to leverage other funding, and ensure sustainability of clubs and organisations post the Covid pandemic, where possible.

The Fund will have a bespoke online application form and as this is additional funding, groups will be able to apply to it in addition to any applications they are making to other SCF programmes.

Application launch: Friday, 4th June.
