Sport England 'Towards an Active Nation'
The newly launched Sport England strategy ' Towards an Active Nation' was launched a couple of weeks ago. Investing in Facilities is one of its seven key investment strands. As part of their commitment to this area of work Sport England will:-
Create a new Community Asset Fund which builds on the success of Inspired Facilities and Protecting Playing Fields offering small grants up to £150K for facilities. They will also enable projects to remain viable for the long term by attracting local social investment.
Increase investment in a Strategic Facilities Fund to support long term investment decisions by others. It will prioritise co-located facilities integrated with other community services so that the needs of local people are better served at lower cost.
Business Manager Graham Simpson is encouraged by the contents of the strategy 'Many of our clubs and organisations in Bedfordshire have benefitted from the Inspired Facilities and Protecting Playing Pitch Funds. I am delighted that Sport England remain committed to investing in community Sports facilities in Bedford & Luton through the Community Asset Fund.
