Grassroots sport clubs are at the front line of getting Londoners into physical activity
Whether it’s directly or indirectly, London Sport is there to help them to thrive and spend more time doing what they do best – delivering great sport to Londoners.
Through our Relationship Management team’s shared expertise of sport, health, education, coaching, volunteering and consumer behaviours in London, we support anyone who delivers sport with packages designed to enable any club – no matter their size, ambition or target audience – to become part of the vision of making London the most physically active city in the world.
Spearheaded by the Greater London Authority-funded ClubWorks programme, our tiered support model exists to support grassroots organisations to benefit from the latest learnings, funding opportunities and best practice around physical activity in the capital.
Club of the Year Award – nominate now
For the third year in a row, the London Sport Awards is back with categories open for nominations until 9 January 2018.
The Club of the Year Award celebrates those clubs and grassroots projects that are contributing to one or more of Sport England’s primary outcomes for sport; physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing, individual development, social and community development and economic development.
ClubWorks – funded by the Greater London Authority
At the highest-tier of our support packages, the ClubWorks programme, funded by the Greater London Authority, supports hundreds of grassroots clubs across the capital through a targeted package of consultancy support.

Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults
Effective safeguarding measures are vital in ensuring that sport organisations at every level are leading the way in keeping children and vulnerable adults safe from harm.
We work with the Child Protection in Sport Unit, Sport England and other bodies in London and nationally to ensure safeguarding policies are in place for London Sport, and available to anybody connected to community sport in the capital.
