Sports Funding

The government funds Sport England, the organisation that decides how to invest government and National Lottery funding to help people across England create a sporting habit for life.

Sport England invests money in facilities, schemes and training programmes that make it easier for more people to play sport and develop their talent. Between 2012 and 2017, Sport England will receive £1 billion from the government and National Lottery funding to invest in projects that will:

  • help more people have a sporting habit for life
  • create more opportunities for young people to play sport
  • nurture and develop talent
  • provide the right facilities in the right places
  • support local authorities and unlock local funding
  • ensure real opportunities for communities


For a breakdown about how we have and are using the funding, please open and read the strategy below.
