Future proof your club and your sports people through an integrated approach to sustainable funding sources.

In addition to traditional sports facilities where people enjoy physical recreational activity, there are many outdoor spaces across the UK; canal towpaths, cycle routes, woodlands, nature reserves and open spaces – many of which have the potential to be used and enjoyed as part of an everyday lifestyle.  

So, we are interested to hear from any sports club or community organisation that has a suggestion to offer that will make a difference to the places where people play sport and get active. 

Or if you have a facility, large or small, in the local community, that has the potential to be used for sport and leisure. It would be great to hear from you. 

Please click here to go to the online contact form and soon after we receive it we will get in touch with you to discuss further.

Options for acquiring funding

For all sports, especially those where funding from Sport England has been reduced or cut, there are other channels open where investment funding can be applied for to improve and supply, facilities, sports coaches, equipment, spectator areas amongst others.  

In itself the UK Sports Development Association provides both the tools and resources to help sports clubs to acquire investment funding either through third party investment, sponsorship, increased membership / spectators and additional funding initiatives, this line of support is available to UKSDA Members Section.
