Sport England, the government arms' length body with responsibility for supporting grassroots sport, has a number of investment funds which local sports clubs can apply to, including their Small Grants fund and the Community Asset Fund.

Detailed information, including prospectuses and guidance on how to apply, can be found on Sport England’s website. Sport England's Club Matters web page also contains a section on ‘Club Management’ which covers topics including Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASC), club structures and managing risk.

In addition, Sport England revised and relaunched its commercial framework in June 2017. The framework will help organisations to reduce the levels of public funding they are reliant on through finding alternative sources of private investment.
