Sport England is determined to create a meaningful and lasting community sport legacy not only from the London 2012 Olympic Games, but also the Paralympic Games, by growing sports participation by disabled people at the grassroots level.
At present, only one in six disabled adults plays sport regularly. We want to change this.
The Inclusive Sport Fund has been set up by Sport England with £8 million of National Lottery Funding. It will invest in programmes designed to grow the number of disabled young people (age 14+) and adults regularly playing sport.
We are looking for innovative, scalable and replicable projects that make it easier and more enjoyable for disabled people to take part in sport and physical activity more often.
The application form will be made available on this website on 1st June 2012, please review the Inclusive Sport Funding prospectus that includes the assessment and eligibility criteria prior to the application form being made available.
The deadline for submission of applications is 5pm on the 31 August.
For further information and queries please contact Sport England on 08458 508 508.
