Applications Open for Barclays Community Football Fund

Football / Thu 15th Feb 2024 at 03:13pm

BARCLAYS believe in creating opportunities for all through access to football. In partnership with Sported, the Barclays Community Football Fund is providing grants, training and exclusive ticketing offers to make football more accessible in communities across the UK.

The Barclays Community Football Fund is helping to reduce inequalities in football by supporting community sports groups who need it most. There will be two application windows, one from now until Friday 12th April, and another from Monday 15th July to Sunday 15th September. Community sports groups can apply to receive:

  • £1,000 ‘Access’ Grants to spend on increasing underrepresented young people’s access to play (note this has increased from last year’s £500)
  • Up to £5,000 ‘Deep Impact’ Grants, available for existing fund recipients
  • Coaching grants to get more women qualified to coach girls’ football at grassroots level

The programme focuses on groups operating in areas of high deprivation and supporting young people from the following underrepresented groups: women and girls, racially-diverse communities, young people with disabilities, the LGBTQ+ community, lower socio-economic areas.
