Community Sport & Recreation Awards open

Entries for the Community Sport and Recreation Awards 2021 are now open, with cash prizes and national recognition up for grabs.

This year has been unlike any other and the Alliance wants to recognise all those who have helped the nation to stay active and healthy at this incredibly challenging time.

There are five categories which are free to enter, with each winning project picking up a £1,000 prize at a virtual awards ceremony in February.

The Resilience in Adversity Award

Sustainable Programme Award

Diversity and Inclusion Award

Mental Health and Wellbeing Award

Youth Development Award

Applicants must either be a member of the Sport and Recreation Alliance, be affiliated or work in partnership with a member to be considered for an award.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Monday 21 December. For more details on the process, the criteria and how to enter, visit the Sport & Recreation Alliance website or email
