NFL Foundation UK - 2022 London Partnerships
Founded in 2021, the NFL Foundation UK is the charitable arm of the NFL within the UK. The Foundation aims to tackle inequality and lack of opportunity faced by young people, aged 11-20 in underserved communities across the UK. The NFL Foundation will address these challenges by providing grants, training and equipment to local community organisations, enabling young people to access activities and support that will help them understand and realise their potential.
The NFL Foundation UK, Mayor of London and Beyond Sport are inviting you to complete this expression of interest form to be considered for a grant partnership of up to £40,000, starting in February 2023 and running through to March 2024. We would encourage you to apply for the relevant funding amount to cover your proposed project delivery for one year, which may be less than £40,000 depending on the size of your organisation.
Funding for these partnerships has been made possible through Sport Unites, the Mayor's flagship community sports programme. It supports his long-term vision to make London the most active and socially-integrated city in the world set out in Sport for All of Us - the Mayor's strategy for sport and physical activity in London. The first phase of the programme was delivered between 2018 and 2021. It invested £8.8m in sport and physical activity interventions to enhance social integration across London, improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of Londoners, and support young Londoners at risk of serious youth violence. Between 2022 and 2025 Sport Unites will work with partners to invest in sport and physical activity initiatives which support children and young people in London, aiming to improve life chances and social opportunities, as well as promoting physical and mental wellbeing.
This grant will support you to build on your existing sport programming and begin to use NFL Flag (non-contact American football) as a tool to further engage young people. The support from this programme will allow chosen organisations to harness the uniqueness of the sport to bring people together in a positive and supportive environment, strengthen our communities and improve the physical and mental health of young Londoners.
In addition to the funding, the NFL will work with the chosen organisations to understand any additional training and equipment needs they may have to support the delivery of NFL Flag as part of this programme.
