Support community projects


We believe sport can unite, strengthen and help to build London’s communities. Our city is fast approaching a population of 9,000,000 people, and becomes more diverse and multi-faceted each day. Take a look at just some of the ways we are working, alongside our key partners to support the capital’s communities.


About ClubWorks


A three-year programme funded by the Mayor of London and managed by London Sport, ClubWorks exists to support clubs and community groups, to help them grow their impact and get more people active. Support is tailored to suit the club’s individual needs and includes help with marketing, securing funding, developing coaching and volunteering programmes, building links with groups like Women in Sport, and much more.

“ClubWorks programme presented the perfect opportunity to receive hands-on dedicated support and guidance with the management of our sports club.”


About Satellite Clubs


Many young people stop playing sport when they leave school. Through our work on the Sport England Satellite Clubs programme, we have helped 25,000 young Londoners to continue doing activity, by creating over 300 new clubs. These clubs offer community sport to both the local school and residents, helping young people to bridge the gap between school sport and community sport.

About Sitting Netball


By adapting a sport to suit the needs of older adults living in care homes, over 100 over 65s were able to try a new way of keeping active through our sitting netball pilot. Now, a partnership group of organisations have joined together to pilot a new scheme to explore the way care homes can help older Londoners be more active.

About This Girl Can


This Girl Can aims to help more women and girls get involved in physical activity and sport. By applying behavioural science to sport, it was clear that women and girls face multiple barriers to being active; fear of judgement, confidence, guilt and more. We are using our expertise to help our partners put this knowledge into practice.


About Inclusive United


This project brings together a range of partners, to offer more opportunities for disabled people to play football. By working together and collaborating, the Inclusive United partners were able to help 3,000 disabled Londoners to be active. As well as the benefits of physical activity, these individuals experienced the wider social, emotional and mental benefits through sport, and some, for the first time in their lives.


Support our community projects


We are mainly funded by Sport England and the Mayor of London, but are always open to new partnerships to fund community physical activity and sport projects.
