Angus Irvine playing fields fund

Access sport is delighted to announce the creation of the Angus Irvine Playing Fields Fund, formed by the merger into Access Sport of the charity formerly known as the Playing Fields Legacy Fund.

The Angus Irvine Playing Fields Fund exists to increase opportunities for young people in disadvantaged areas of the UK to play outdoor sport.

The fund is available to local community groups, sports clubs and charities.

Grants will typically be in the range from £2.5k – £5k although a larger grant may be possible in some circumstances.

Applications can be made for grants towards some or all of the following types of projects with the intention of growing capacity to reach more young people:

  1. The development and improvement of playing fields and other facilities
  2. The development and training of volunteers including the provision of qualifications
  3. The purchase of specialist disability equipment
  4. The development of long-term sustainability, for example marketing and finance expertise

Where it can be demonstrated that a grant will help unlock additional funding from other funders, this is encouraged
