Barclays Spaces for Sports

Barclays

Barclays Spaces for Sports is a global, community-based programme, which uses sport as a platform to help young people get back into work, education or find training, while also revitalising disadvantaged communities in a sustainable way.

In the UK, 200 community sports sites have been created in partnership with the Football Foundation since the programme started in 2004, supporting more than 40 different sports. The objective is for these sites to continue to serve their communities over the foreseeable.

Globally, Barclays Spaces for Sports has established programmes in China, Hong Kong, India, South Africa, Spain, the USA, Zambia and Zimbabwe and will be launching a number of new, innovative partnerships around the world in conjunction with leading sport-for-development organisations.

Mayor of London: Facilities Fund

Mayor of London

The Mayor of London: Sports Facilities Fund, is part of the Mayor's commitment to deliver a sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The overall aim of the Mayor of London: Sports Facilities Fund is to raise participation levels for sports in London through the funding of sports facilities. The fund helps to provide affordable, good quality local facilities within local communities. The Football Foundation is delighted to have managed the first four windows of this fund and we are now open for window five.

Rounds One to Four saw 77 projects with all 32 London Boroughs plus the City receiving funding worth over £5 million. This investment has been matched by partnership funding in excess of £34 million, representing a match funding ratio of 1:6.

At least 18 different sports are being played at previously funded sites and the fund has also funded less traditional sporting facilities such as outdoor gyms, climbing walls and gymnasiums.
