What We Fund

Major Capital Projects

The Major Capital Projects Grants Programme provides funds of between £20,001 and £150,000 for the renovation, modernisation or creation of significant facilities for organisations that can demonstrate a clear commitment to encouraging and supporting people who are not physically active to participate in physical activity, sport and/or play.

Current priorities

Our current priorities are to increase participation, especially among those who are currently physically inactive or who have low levels of activity, in particular:

  • Individuals who are currently physically inactive or who have low levels of activity.
  • Groups which are currently physically inactive or who have low levels of activity.
  • Children and young people outside of school hours.

Our Major Capital Project Grants Programme will not fund projects that do not address these priorities.
