About Oadby & Wigston Borough Council Sports Facilities Fund
The fund is open to organisations that meet the necessary qualifying criteria of providing sports equipment or facilities for the delivery of community sport and physical activity. It doesn't have to be a traditional space – or a traditional sport. The programme aims to provide support to improve local community sport infrastructure which will support greater community participation in sport and/or offer safer and more inclusive community sporting hubs.
Every project will be individually reviewed but it is up to you and your organisation to shape your project and the funding request that you make to us.
Small Sports Facility Investments
Ranging from between £500 to £2,500. For example, this might be to address a shortfall in equipment. Funding is available for up to 100% of the total project cost. The Small Sports Facility Investments is not available for Statutory Bodies and all Education Establishments.
Medium Sports Facility Investments
Ranging from between £10,000 to £50,000. For example, this might be an upgrade to an existing facility or developing a new space in the community. Funding is available for up to 50% of the total project cost.
Large Sports Facility Investments
Ranging from between £50,000 to £100,000. These need to demonstrate a considerable impact or are targeting under-represented groups. Funding is available for up to 50% of the total project cost. A requirement is that partnership work will be undertaken between the organisation and Oadby and Wigston Borough Council to develop the project.
