Sport England Funding Rounds

The recent publication of Sporting future - A New Strategy for an Active Nation (DCMS)in December 2015, Towards an Active Nation (Sport England) in May 2016 and Towards an Active Oxfordshire, A Strategic Framework for Sport and Physical Activity in 2017 have raised a number of challenges and opportunities for the sport and physical activity sector.

One of the challenges is how the sector in Oxfordshire is to respond to the new Funding streams coming from Sport England, based on the 7 funding areas of:

  1. Tacking Inactivity
  2. Children and Young People
  3. Volunteering
  4. Taking sport and activity into the mass market
  5. Supporting sports Core Market
  6. Local Delivery Pilots
  7. Facilities

This page attempts to keep partners and stakeholders up to date with the Oxfordshire response. Please let OxSPA know if you are considering bidding in to any of the funding streams so that we can help or signpost to other partners who are interested.

OxSPA will co-ordinate a variety of countywide applications but this will not be for every funding stream. Please get in touch with the lead outlined below if you have an interest.
