Yorkshire Sport Foundation, North Yorkshire Sport, Active Humber, Sported and StreetGames have formed a regional cost of living group to support clubs and community organisations as they navigate increasing costs associated with the cost of living crisis.
Each organisation has surveyed the clubs and organisations that they work with and identified that most are worried about their financial situation and have seen costs increasing. Within South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire, 83% of clubs were concerned about their financial situation.
*Full club survey results are coming soon*
To support clubs through the Cost Of Living crisis, we have organised a series of workshops to help clubs understand their financial position and try to become more self-sustainable. The series of workshops are free and open to all clubs and community organisations.
Session 1: Club Matters: Dealing With Increasing Costs
Session 3: Club Matters: Financial Sustainability
Session 4: Club Matters: Planning For Your Future
StreetGames host a number of courses through their Sustainability Training Programme which are free for organisations in the StreetGames network.
The National Lottery Community Fund has a specific fund for organisations that support people and communities in England under severe pressure because of the increased cost of living. The Community Organisations Cost of Living fund is for awards between £10,000 and £75,000.
For funding under £10,000 National Lottery Awards for All funding is available too.
