DUE TO ENORMOUS DEMAND THE FUND IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED TO ANY FURTHER NEW APPLICANTS THIS QUARTER. IT WILL BE REOPENED FOR THE NEXT QUARTER'S GRANTS IN AUGUST.


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:

  • The development and improvement of playing fields and other facilities
  • The development and training of volunteers including the provision of qualifications
  • The purchase of specialist disability equipment
  • 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.
