Sport England Familes Fund Now Open

Expressions of interest now open for Sport England's latest funding programme to help families with children get active

This is a major new investment programme which will support families with children to get active and play sport together.

Organisations with a track record in changing behaviour with families in lower socio-economic groups are invited to submit an expression of interest for their latest funding programme.


There are three main outcomes Sport England want to achieve with this investment, including:

  • Increasing activity levels of families in lower socio-economic groups whose children are not doing the recommended 60 minutes a day of sport or physical activity
  • Support families to be active together throughout the week outside of school time
  • Deliver positive experiences so that children can build confidence in their ability to be active.

There are a number of challenges that need to be addressed to meet the aims of this funding and we want to work with partners who have a successful track record in changing behaviour with families in lower socio-economic groups.

We're looking to invest in projects that deliver what families really want and need – which means organisations don't necessarily need to be related to sport or physical activity.
