The Inclusive Sport Fund has been set up by Sport England, with National Lottery Funding, with the intention of producing a lasting community legacy from the London 2012 Paralympic Games, by growing sports participation of disabled people at grassroots level.

The Fund will invest in programmes designed to grow the number of disabled young people (age 14 and over) and adults that regularly play sport.

They are looking for innovative, scalable and replicable projects that make it easier and more enjoyable for disabled people to take part in sport and physical activity more often.
