StreetGames is committed to supporting our network in every way that we can through this crisis. We understand that funding is a pressing concern for many of the projects in our network, especially those who may have received funding for activities that can no longer be delivered during the lockdown.

Our team is here to help, so please reach out. You can get in touch with your local Doorstep Sport Adviser or email us at

On this page, you can also find further advice on how and where to apply for additional funding.
