Community Sport and Recreation Awards

Community Sport and Recreation Awards

Entries for the Sport and Recreation Alliance annual Community Sport and Recreation Awards are open and will close on on Sunday 18 November. This awards programme is free and easy to enter and has been running for over 20 years.  The awards programme focuses on celebrating the great work going on in sport and recreation at a grassroots level, and champions grassroots work on a national scale, using examples of best practice to drive positive, societal change.

To help spread the message we have created a member toolkit (attached) containing all the key details on how to enter.
This year there are five categories:

  • Community Engagement - sponsored by Professional Footballers' Association
  • Youth Development
  • Creative Partnerships- sponsored by Sport:80
  • Volunteering
  • Mental Health

There is £1,000 up for grabs for each category winner and the closing date for entries is Sunday 18 November.

The Sport and Recreation Alliance have created a toolkit containing all the key details on how to enter, examples and suggested social media posts.  Click here to download the tooklkit (PDF 90kB).
