Sport England Return to Play: Active Together

About Sport England Return to Play: Active Together

Since May 2020, we've been running a successful crowdfunding initiative called Active Together, helping sports clubs and other organisations to set up and run their own crowdfunding campaigns to help sustain themselves through the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

Initially with a £1 million budget, Active Together was designed to help with the immediate financial impact of coronavirus and in the longer-term, the return to play.

To date, we've supported campaigns with a financial pledge towards their target fundraising amount, but in addition to this, we've been providing:

  • free 1-2-1 coaching by experts
  • advice and guidance on campaign improvements
  • access to free online courses
  • free 30-minute webinars, monthly.

As part of our return to play offer, an additional £1.5m has been made available to continue supporting clubs and local organisations to set up and run their own crowdfunding campaign, with a potential financial pledge from us to help them towards their crowdfunding target.

Crowdfunding is a great alternative if you don't meet any of the priority groups on our Return to Play: Small Grants or Community Asset Fund funding options, or if you're seeking to raise funds because of a loss of income due to the coronavirus pandemic.
