Return to Play: Simple ways you can help people return to sport and physical activity

Posted: Wed, 28 Apr 2021 12:30

With lockdown restrictions continuing to ease in line with the Government roadmap, many forms of sport and physical activity have now returned.

To help make this experience as attractive and enjoyable as possible for participants, Sport England have highlighted 'five simple ways you can help people return to sport and physical activity'.

These tips, based on recent insights around attitudes, intentions and feelings about getting back into activity, can help sports clubs and other providers consider how to make the best of their return to activity and include:

  • Showcasing your safety measures
  • Emphasising the enjoyment factor
  • Showing the benefits, not telling the benefits
  • How to ease people back in
  • Focus on keeping it cheap or free

To view these tips in full, visit the Sport England Return to Play page, where you can also check for information on current restrictions and explore the detailed return to play insights.

Community Leisure Recovery Fund: Apply for up to £50,000 for community leisure facilities

Community Leisure Recovery Fund: Apply for up to £50,000 for community leisure facilities

Posted: Tue, 06 Apr 2021 18:00

Sport England have announced a £5m Community Leisure Recovery Fund (CLRF) to help community-run leisure centres and facilities reopen by supporting the difference between income and expenditure for the period of 1 April-30 September 2021.

Applications are invited for awards of up to £50,000 between now and noon on 29th April.

This funding will focus on supporting those who provide a general leisure offer – for example, a mix of swimming, sports hall, fitness, health and wellbeing and other facilities – that's open to all members of the community.

It's targeted at organisations who own or have a long-term lease for a community leisure centre that's open to the community, but don't have any contractual obligation or receive income from a local authority to deliver leisure services.

The facility must be an integral part of the local public leisure provision, with community leisure service provision being its primary purpose.

This fund isn't designed to support sports clubs or member-only facilities like bowls, tennis or other similar clubs.

In addition to funding, recipients of the CLRF will also receive bespoke support to help inform their recovery planning, guide improvements, train their workforce and complete coronavirus risk assessments.

Further information on the fund can be found on the Sport England Community Leisure Recovery Fund page.
