Small unrestricted grants to help sustain the UK’s community sports clubs who are in need and may be threatened with closure due to the cost of living crisis.
Cash4Clubs is a corporate-initiated sports club scheme, funded by Flutter Entertainment (formerly Paddy Power Betfair), a bookmaking holding company.
For the last 25 years, it has been offering funding to support the sustainability of local sports clubs across the UK and Ireland, thereby ensuring more people have access to local sports.
This year, community sports clubs and organisations who are in need due to the impact of the pandemic and the cost of living crisis can apply for unrestricted grants of £2,000 from a funding pot of £200,000.
The funding can be used for anything that will add to the sustainability and effectiveness of the sports club, including buying new equipment, improving facilities or helping members to gain coaching qualifications.
While the funding is unrestricted there is particular interest in hearing from clubs that are using sport for other social purposes such as developing skills, reducing crime or addressing anti-social behaviour.
Applications will be accepted from clubs and organisations that are either registered charities or clubs with a structured governance and constitution.
Clubs that are targeting communities from deprived areas are encouraged to apply.
Full details will be provided when the scheme opens.
Applications open on 18 October 2023.
