Queen's Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund aims to use sport and physical activity as a means of bringing a community together and tackling inequalities via awards of between £300 and £10,000 from a pot of £5 million of National Lottery funding.

You don’t have to be a sports organisation to apply but you should show how you have the skills and experience to deliver the project – we fund many non-sports organisations each year.

Our funding will support projects delivering recognised sports and physical activity (see exception below) – a full list of which can be found here.

Only not-for-profit organisations, with a minimum of three unrelated/non-cohabiting, trustees or directors where decision making/voting rights are equitably distributed, are eligible to receive funding under this fund.

Eligible types of organisations are:

  • a community amateur sports club (as registered with HMRC)
  • an unregistered voluntary and community organisation with a not-for-profit constitution
  • a registered charity
  • a not-for-profit company (limited by guarantee without share capital or charitable incorporated organisation) and without persons of significant control
  • a community interest company (CIC) with no persons of significant control, or other social enterprise
  • community benefit society
  • a school using their facilities for wider community benefit
  • local authority bodies (including town, parish and community councils).

Projects should consider how they involve their community in the design and delivery of the project. We’d like our funding to connect communities and build on the strengths and assets already in place.

  • Minor facility alterations. For example, to adapt a community space to make it more accessible/provide an offer of sport and physical activity. Please note, you must have, or provide confirmation you don’t need, the relevant planning permission/building control consent and/or landlord approval.
  • Coaching. Providing opportunities for those less likely to be active - offering them an activity they want to participate in.
  • Volunteer training. Develop your organisation's volunteer base through offering training to both new and existing volunteers.
  • Service alterations. Providing new ways of delivering your existing activity to attract new participants/members – for example, offering outreach or web-based classes or targeting new audiences through connecting with other providers in your locality.
  • Additional equipment. To enable expansion of activity or safer delivery of activity – for example a defibrillator and associated costs (such as training for its use) as part of a wider project to deliver sport and physical activity.
