If you’re looking for funding to help develop a sport, dance or physical activity in Newcastle-under-Lyme, the Sports Development Team can help you to find the most suitable grants and funding for your project.

When it comes to funding, our team has a wealth of knowledge on the subject and can guide you through the process from start to finish. Here are a few facts to get you started:

  • There are grants available to support community clubs and groups to grow and develop
  • Generally, funding organisations will not give money to cover existing activities or for unspecified purposes, so it’s important to be clear what you want to use the money for and why
  • Each funding organisation will have its own priorities concerning how it would like funds to be spent, so think about how closely your project matches their aims and criteria to ensure you have the best chance of success.

The next step is to get in touch with our team and let us know what your plans are and why you need funding, we will then direct you to the relevant funding opportunities.

Here are just a few links of funding opportunities and sources of information:

Sport England

Big Lottery Fund

Sports Coach UK

Sport Across Staffordshire - funding

The above links are a good place to start, but the list is not exhaustive. Contact the J2 Active team to help you to find the funding most suitable for your project, by calling 01782 742615 or email
