Kick It Out is developing its engagement with grassroots football nationally through its Grassroots Activity Fund.

The Grassroots Activity Fund is aimed at encouraging and helping with the facilitation of grassroots activities celebrating 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.

Speaking after the launch of the fund, Imrul Gazi, Grassroots Advisor for Kick It Out, said: “The Grassroots Activity Fund is a great initiative and I am really excited that we are able to offer our support to local clubs and organisations in funding their own great ideas.

“It’s the work we do at grassroots that really makes all the difference and where people can make a real change.

“Kick It Out is committed to making footballing communities a fully inclusive environment for all and I’m looking forward to working with different groups.”
