Government's Sporting Future strategy makes clear that investing in the right facilities in the right places is key to encouraging more people to take part in sport and physical activity and to improving the experience for those who already do.

Sport England's Strategic Facilities Fund was opened in 2014/15. The aim of the fund is to provide capital investment into a number of key community projects. So far, £42 million has been invested in 33 new state of the art leisure facilities.

Sport England also run the Community Asset Fund which will provide up to £15 million per year to enhance the spaces in local communities that help people to be active.

Responsibility for grassroots sport is devolved and each country has a Home Nation Sports Council, sportscotland, Sport Wales and Sport NI in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland respectively
