Funding and support

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at www.charnwood.gov.uk/restrictions.

Please note: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all grants are currently suspended. For service updates, visit our coronavirus webpage

At Active Charnwood we offer funding to individuals, clubs and organisations that are in need of additional finance to run their projects and activities.

Sports funding grants

We have four different types of sports funding grants:

Active Charnwood Alliance

The Active Charnwood Alliance, formerly known as the Charnwood Sport and Active Recreation Alliance (CSARA), is a partnership formed to make sport and recreation inclusive and provide opportunities for all within the borough.

Members of the partnership provide a range of services, funding, events/workshops and programmes for those already involved in sport or those thinking about giving it a try. The Active Charnwood Alliance website provides full details about all of these.

The Active Charnwood Alliance is made up of a main strategic board, consisting of three sub-groups;

  • Children and young people
  • Club, coach and volunteers
  • Active recreation

If you or your organisation/club would like to join one of the sub groups of the Active Charnwood Alliance please contact Andrew Doodson on 01509 634592 or email: andrew.doodson@charnwood.gov.uk.
