Sport England is focused on the creation of a world-leading community sport system.
Sport England invest National Lottery and Exchequer funding in organisations and projects that will grow and sustain participation in grassroots sport and create opportunities for people to excel at their chosen sport. The Sport England structure reflects this focus.
Formerly known as the English Sports Council, Sport England work in partnership with UK Sport, which has responsibility for elite success, and the Youth Sport Trust, which is focused on PE and school sport.
Accountable to Parliament through the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Sport England also have a role protecting sports provision as a statutory consultee on planning applications that affect playing fields.
As a County Sports Partnership our role is to deliver Sport England programmes at a local level.
