Support available for flood-damaged facilities

Sport England has updated the criteria for the Small Grants Programme and will again be accepting applications from organisations who have been impacted by the recent storms and flooding.

The available funding will be focused on those areas most badly affected, and priority will be given to sports and activities that need to return quickly.

Spring and summer sports, or where activity is not scheduled to take place for several weeks, will be a lower priority.

The Small Grants eligibility criteria will apply to organisations seeking storm relief funding. Organisations applying will need to confirm they have any relevant permissions required to carry out the work.

Previous recipients of emergency funding for flood or storm damage that are now applying again will need to show the steps they have taken to mitigate against further damage.

Applicants will need to submit evidence of damage which is directly attributable to the recent flooding (October / November 2023). Upload photographs with your application.

Applicants will also need to show why the damage couldn’t be covered by their insurance policy.

As part of Sport Engand’s commitment towards collective net zero ambitions, applicants should explain how, as an organisation, they are attempting to reduce energy usage, promote responsible travel and reduce waste.

Funding for emergency costs to help restore sports facilities and activity venues is available. Examples include:

  • skip hire to remove sediment and rubbish
  • minor electrical works to restore power
  • decontamination works or clearing of blocked drains
  • cleaning work to get showers and changing rooms back up and running
  • securing buildings.

The funding is only designed to help with the initial clear up to enable activity to resume.
