Since 1997, the Government and lottery distributing bodies between them have invested over £3 billion in physical activity and sport. £60 million of this investment has established over 3,000 community sports coach posts supported by a network of coach development officers. £100 million has been specifically invested in community sports clubs to widen access and increase participation. We have also invested in over 4,000 sports facilities.

In addition, we have invested £34.5 million between 2006-08 in the National Sport Foundation. This investment is match funded pound for pound by the private sector, and will fund a range of projects to benefit grassroots sport.
