COVID-19 club support

This page brings together the many websites that might be able to support for your sports club in some way.

 

This page is not a definitive or exhaustive list, but we hope it may be of some assistance during these difficult times as sport tries to get back up and running.

For the most up to date guidance, visit www.gov.uk.

Your National Governing Body of Sport will also have guidance, and we have listed the websites for many of these and will keep the list updated.

Further information, particularly if you do not have a National Governing Body of Sport, is available from organisations such as Sport England and London Sport.

The final set of contacts is a list of organisations that provide funding support.

If you have any questions regarding this information or any other questions about your club please email sportsdevelopment@richmond.gov.uk.
