Fund description:

The Playing Fields Legacy Fund provides grants for voluntary groups and sports clubs for the improvement of their playing fields, changing rooms and community rooms. The priority is to support groups that are revitalising playing fields in the most deprived areas of the country, particularly in inner cities, but the trust will also consider providing funding to groups that run or manage community playing fields anywhere in the country.

Applications can be made by County Playing Field Associations, voluntary-sector sports clubs, local authorities, registered charities and other not-for-profit organisations.

Grants are up to £10,000 and can be used for pitch improvements, constructing new pitches, renovating changing rooms and can also cover feasibility studies for these types of works as well as some revenue costs such as training.
