Return to Disability Football Fund

Funded by The FA and Sport England (Using National Lottery funding), return to disability football is a 300k fund providing grants of up to £1,000 to help clubs and organisations most in need to restart or deliver new disability football activity.

About Return to Disability Football Fund

To make sure the support is available to people in the areas of the country where the need is greatest, the fund is available to all Clubs and organisations that had a disability team(s) affiliated to the CFA/FA in season 19/20 and/or 20/21 to help restart or deliver new disability football activity.

The funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis and will close as soon as we receive applications to the value of the budget.

What can the grant be spent on?

The grant must be used towards either:

Returning to football

  • Restarting football activity across all groups. We particularly welcome applications with a focus on groups that have lapsed due to lockdown and COVID-19 and are at most risk of not returning to pre-COVID activity.

New football activity

  • Delivering new football activity that was cancelled due to lockdown and COVID-19.

How much can we apply for?

Eligible clubs and organisations can apply up to a maximum of £1,000.

When do we have to use our funding by?

If you're successful in your grant application, you are encouraged to use your funding within 3 months of the grant award.

The Return to Disability Football Fund opens on Monday 12 July 2021 and will close when we've received applications to the value of the budget.

All funding decisions will be communicated to applicants ASAP and typically within two weeks of applying. We anticipate all offers being made no later than Friday 6 August.
