The Inclusive Sport Fund has been set up by Sport England with the intention of producing a lasting community legacy from the London 2012 Paralympic Games, by growing sports participation by disabled people at grassroots level.
A total of £8 million of National Lottery Funding is available.
The Fund will invest in programmes designed to grow the number of disabled young people (age 14 and over) and adults that regularly play sport. Programmes should be innovative, scalable and replicable, and make it easier and more fun for disabled people to take part in sport and physical activity more often.
