What Tees Valley Sport can do to help

We are here to provide help and advice on these funding pots and support you through the application process.

There are many different options available to different organisations and we can help you see the wood through the trees.

If you are needing assistance please drop us an email at with a contact number and some information about your enquiry and one of our team will get back in touch with you promptly.

We apologise that our office number is out of action during this time and ensure you we are all still working to support you throughout.


£20m Community Emergency Fund

This aims to deliver immediate funding to those most in need and builds on the success of similar previous funds such as our Flood Relief Fund.

It’s specifically targeted at organisations, including those not currently supported by us, who have a role in supporting the nation to be active but who are experiencing short-term financial hardship or the ceasing of operations due to the impact of coronavirus. Organisations can apply for grants between £300 and £10,000.

The types of organisations eligible include local sports clubs forced to close at short notice but who are facing ongoing costs around maintenance and utility bills, and voluntary and community sector organisations who deliver or enable sport and physical activity.

A specific example might be a grant to support a local boxing club pay costs for their facility when no activity is taking place, or a grant to support a league who have paid for equipment to run a competition which has now been cancelled.
