The Fund exists to increase opportunities for young people in disadvantaged areas of the UK to play outdoor sport and is available to local community groups, sports clubs and charities.

Grants will typically be in the range from £2,500 - £5,000 although a larger grant may be possible in some circumstances.

Applications can be made for grants towards some or all of the following types of projects with the intention of growing capacity to reach more young people: 

The development and improvement of playing fields and other facilities. 

The development and training of volunteers including the provision of qualifications. 

The purchase of specialist disability equipment. 

The development of long-term sustainability, for example marketing and finance expertise.

Where it can be demonstrated that a grant will help unlock additional funding from other funders, this is encouraged.

Applications can be submitted at any time. More information at: https://www.accesssport.org.uk/apply-to-aipff
