Victims of Storm Ciara helped by emergency flood relief fund from Sport England

Grants of National Lottery funding up to £5,000 could help repair damage to pitches and facilities.

Storm damaged pitches and facilities could be back in use sooner than expected thanks to our new emergency flood relief fund.

The effects of Storm Ciara are still being fully assessed but, in an attempt to rectify the damage as soon as possible, local authorities and community sports organisations are being invited to apply for a grant of up to £5,000 to pay for emergency repairs.

Gale force winds and torrential rain have left pitches, pavilions and floodlights in a state of disrepair, with Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire among the worst-hit areas.

Organisations that need assistance with their application should contact our Funding line using the details below.

While guidance on dealing with both the aftermath of flooding and mitigating damage can be found on our sustainability page.
