Community Games are a way for you to bring your community together to take part in sporting and cultural activities inspired by – and in celebration of – London 2012 and the Queen’s Jubilee year.
Community Games gives you the chance to be part of the London 2012 official legacy. But it’s also about bringing people together to try new sporting and arts activities and having loads of fun. Perhaps you’d like to do something for the kids at your local school in the summer holidays, or maybe you’d like everyone in your street to get to know each other better. You could organise a Games to celebrate a year since the London 2012 Games or perhaps take advantage of one of the Bank Holiday weekends to make sure this great year doesn’t just pass you by.
Many people have shown that Community Games can be organised for very little cost, and because of this County Sports Partnership across the Country have small pots of funding to offer community groups a grant towards the cost of their event.
In most cases groups just need to complete a short application form, providing details of their event and provide supporting documentation. This is a rolling programme.
