Sport England

Since 2017 Sport England have been supporting the Sport Project with funding from the National Lottery - from its Active Ageing fund, which was launched to tackle inactivity in the over 55s as part of the national strategy Towards An Active Nation.

An additional Lottery funded Sport England grant was awarded in 2021 allowing for a two year extension to the programme. With this grant we’ve expanded our offer to all adults across SHP Service with a specific area of the programme focusing on women. We're sharing our learnings and growing our network of partners through our Physical Activity For All initiative. As well as collaborating with key players within the sector to advocate for physical activity to be a part of core homelessness provision.

London Housing Foundation

In 2021, we were awarded a two-year grant to support the expansion of our successful Sport Project.

The funding will be used to support our efforts of influencing and advocacy work within the Sport and Homeless sector.   

The LHF’s primary aim is to reduce street homelessness amongst single people, supporting the work of other organisations by running programmes and providing grants.

KKR

This year, we received an additional grant from American company KKR. This grant will be used for the expansion of the ‘Health’ side of our Sport & Health Programme. 

This grant will help us provide immediate mental and physical health support to more than 700 homeless people in Westminster, Camden, Islington, Newham and Redbridge.

Other Partners

Over the last three years, we've engaged 600 clients in the programme with 35 weekly sessions, but we couldn't have done it without some amazing people - working alongside 30 organisations and over 130 volunteers. Want to get involved?
