£1 Million to Diversify The Sport And Physical Activity Workforce
National Lottery funding will be used to help create skilled and relatable coaches and volunteers.
Sixteen projects aimed at engaging women and/or black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) communities in coaching or volunteering will receive a share of £1 million.
We're awarding the National Lottery funding to projects who applied to our Workforce Diversity Great Ideas Fund, last summer.
Launched during Coaching Week 2019, the fund aims to address the barriers faced by women and those from BAME communities when trying to get started in coaching and volunteering.
The recipients include everyone from local sports clubs and schools to national governing bodies, each with a brand new project to work on.
