Barclays Community Football Fund, Apply Now - £500 Grants!
The Barclays Community Football Fund, which opened to the Sported network in April, is now open to all eligible football clubs and community groups across the UK.
Grants of £500 are available for groups wishing to start offering football, those keen to expand their existing provision to new audiences or those already delivering football to under-represented young people. Alongside the grants, the programme will offer training and support resources to groups to help reduce inequalities in the participation of football.
The programme’s engagement focuses on including girls and young people from lower socio-economic and under-represented groups: including racially diverse communities, people with disabilities, and people from the LGBTQ+ community. This could not have come at a better time with a sharp rise in interest among girls in football after the Euros’ win and the cost-of-living crisis making many sporting activities difficult to access.
