However, there are a couple of further Sport England funds that you may be interested in:

Innovation call for innovative solutions to address those underrepresented in sport and impacted by COVID-19 – specifically focussed on women, older people, those from BAME backgrounds, disabled people – deadline is 1 July.  More information can be found here: https://www.sportengland.org/how-we-can-help/coronavirus/funding-innovation-and-flexibility

Active Together Crowdfunder Scheme – this is match funding for centres/ clubs/ branches/ groups facing short term difficulty.   They would need to crowdfund in the usual way and then this could be matched by up to £10,000 of Sport England funding.  https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/funds/active-together#:~:text=Criteria,to%20the%20ongoing%20coronavirus%20crisis
