Grassroots sport, fitness and leisure facilities are facing collapse due to Covid-19.
In light of the second national lockdown and new tier systems we believe that, without emergency government support, community sport and physical activity face a bleak future that will be difficult to recover from, impacting the nation’s physical and mental health and damaging Britain’s ability to Build Back Better.
That’s why we are supporting the Sports Recovery Fund petition which calls on government to instigate emergency support to ensure sports clubs, fitness and leisure facilities – the lifeblood of communities across the nation – can remain open and survive the coming difficult months.
The data shows that our facilities are both safe and essential in leading the nation’s recovery from COVID-19. We want to keep community facilities open so that we can provide the opportunities for every single person to become fitter and healthier to combat the pandemic and lead more fulfilling lives.
