Kick It Out's Grassroots Activity Fund aims to encourage and support grassroots events or initiatives throughout the country which celebrate equality and diversity in football.

The fund has been established to facilitate small-to-medium sized events, which give grassroots clubs and organisations across the amateur game an opportunity to highlight the importance of creating a fully-inclusive environment for all.

Applicants can receive up to £1000 in funding, but it is important to note the cost needs to be kept realistic and a higher cost will require further justification from prospective applicants. Grants are made as a single lump sum and will cover the proposed event only.

Tajean Hutton, Kick It Out’s Grassroots Manager, said: “The Kick It Out Grassroots Activity Fund will help provide support for grassroots providers nationwide in their endeavours benefiting local communities.

“This is a huge step in establishing Kick It Out as a support mechanism for those who dedicate themselves to making football inclusive for all at grassroots level.”
