#GetYourKitOn for Grassroots Sport
Cuts of 25-40% to sport’s funding from the Exchequer are widely expected in the Spending Review on 25 November. Reductions at this level for the Department For Culture, Media and Sport would cost community sport significant amounts of investment
We want everybody to show their support for grassroots sport and how much they value government investment into the sector.
With widespread support from the sector, we’re campaigning to protect funding for grassroots sport.
