Core Market Event

You are invited to attend a workshop aiming to help anyone considering applying to a Sport England for funding under its Core Market theme, individually or collaboratively, improve their chance of success, and reduced the risk of wasted effort by:

– learning more about Sport England’s intentions for this fund,

– considering whether your priorities and objectives align with Sport England’s and what could help you realise these aims

– discovering critical sources of guidance, advice and insight, and

– potentially finding new partners and collaborative opportunities

through a presentation by Sport England, highly interactive workshops and networking opportunities.


The Core Market is a key theme for Sport England for which the first funding opportunity has been announced. Sport England are calling for innovative Expressions of Interest, from partners with demonstrable ability to help people stay active when their lives change, which:

– Help to support those who are the most likely to stop exercising regularly when their life changes: women, people with a limiting disability, those less well-off, and/or people aged 55+

– Reach those people who are outside the reach of sport’s national governing bodies


Places are FREE but strictly limited, so early booking will be ESSENTIAL; due to the expected demand we may ultimately have to limit partners to one delegate per organisation.
