Grassroots sport, fitness and leisure facilities are facing collapse due to Covid-19.

Without emergency government support, like that given to the arts sector, community sport and physical activity faces a bleak future that will be difficult to recover from, impacting the nation’s physical and mental health and damaging Britain’s ability to Build Back Better.

That’s why we are supporting the Sports Recovery Fund petition which calls on government to instigate emergency support to ensure sport clubs, fitness and leisure facilities – the lifeblood of communities across the nation – can remain open and survive the coming difficult months.

The data shows that our facilities are both safe and essential in leading the nation’s recovery from COVID-19. We want to keep community facilities open so that we can provide the opportunities for every single person to become fitter and healthier to combat the pandemic and lead more fulfilling lives.

Join us and support the campaign by sharing why your local facility is so important to you via your social channels using #SaveOurSports – and please also consider writing to your local MP to make them aware of the impact if the Sports Recovery Fund is not made available.
