Inspired Facilities – New Open Programme – Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport

Inspired by London

Inspired Facilities is Sport England’s £110 million programme that funds the renovation and modernisation of local sports facilities.

To date the fund has helped over 1,300 projects to improve and refurbish sports clubs or transform non-sporting venues into modern grassroots sport facilities. So whether you are a club, local authority, school or parish council they could help you improve your facilities.

As a result of feedback from previous applicants, the application process for Inspired Facilities has changed. It is now an open programme which means that you can submit your application as soon as you are ready rather than having to rush to send it in by a specific date.

Decision meetings will then take place twice a year, the first one of these will be in September 2014 when all applications received prior to the 6 June will be assessed. The second will take place in February 2015 for applications received before 3 November. Please note only one application per organisation can be considered at each decision meeting. Applicants to Round 5 will find out the outcome by end of March 2014.
