Support during Coronavirus

During 2020-21 we made some temporary changes to the LSA grant scheme as a result of the impacts of the pandemic.

We are pleased to announce that we are offering a small, one-off Instructor Re-Start Grant of up to £250 to help physical activity instructors with costs relating to re-opening or re-starting services following closure during the pandemic. Instructors can apply for this grant even if they already have a grant open with Blaby District Council.

Re-start costs might include, for example:

  • Purchase of signage, screens and other necessary equipment for social distancing
  • Printing of posters to display
  • Purchase of PPE (such as masks, aprons, gloves), sanitiser, fogging machine
  • Professional cleaning or other services to bring a building back into use safely
  • Re-stocking of essential supplies
  • Promotional activities to let members know you are re-opening/starting
  • Volunteer expenses where additional cover/roles are needed to run safely

This is a one off funding opportunity, to provide grants to eligible applicants until there is no funding left.

Please read the Instructor Re-Start Grant guidance notes available to download from this webpage for full details, including the eligibility criteria. To apply, please complete our short form below.
