Sport England has invested £5 million of National Lottery funding into the project aimed at helping keep workers in the sport and physical activity sector. Up to 50,000 sports coaches, volunteers, fitness professionals and group exercise instructors can now apply for support to return to working in the sector as it continues to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

ReTrain to Retain is a skills, funding and support programme that Sport England has invested £5 million of National Lottery funding in and will be run by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).

The programme has been designed for those who, prior to the pandemic, worked in the sport and physical activity sector but had to find other work as a result of the restrictions imposed on sporting activities and facilities. It aims to help them return, as well as provide additional skills, funding and support for up to 5,000 self-employed professionals and micro-businesses, as well as work with up to 500 sector employers to address skills shortages and fund essential training.
