Mayor of London’s Sport Unites Fund Opens for Applications

About the Fund

Sport Unites is the Mayor of London’s community sport programme, which was launched in 2018. At the heart of the Mayor’s approach to sport in London is his belief in the power of sport to bring people together and improve their lives. This programme has five priority areas:

  • Helping the most inactive people be more active
  • Improving people’s mental health and wellbeing
  • Decreasing isolation/loneliness
  • Strengthening connections in your local area and across communities
  • Reducing serious youth violence

The Sport Unites Fund is for projects that use sport and physical activity to address one or more of these priorities.

Magic Little Grants

About the Fund

This year we will be funding over double the amount of organisations that we ever have before and we will still be spreading this funding out far and wide across the country. Not only this, but we have expanded our eligibility criteria. In previous years, funding had to go towards projects that were delivering sports or physical activities. But this year funding can go towards any of the below projects:

  1. Improving mental wellbeing
  2. Enabling community participation in the arts
  3. Preventing or reducing the impact of poverty
  4. Supporting marginalised groups and promoting equality
  5. Improving biodiversity and green spaces
  6. Enabling participation in physical activity
  7. Responding to the climate emergency and promoting sustainability 
  8. Increasing community access to outdoor space

If your organisation is carrying out a project within these themes, make sure to get your applications in once the programme launches on 1st March 2021. The application process is short and simple, taking 10 minutes to complete. Each organisation may only apply once in 2021.

Application Deadline

This programme will run from 1st March 2021 (launch date) to 31st October 2021 (application deadline).
