Barclays has partnered with Sported to deliver a new fund to make playing football more accessible at the grassroots level and to deliver the sport to underrepresented young people.

Through the Barclays Community Football Fund, 5,550 community groups across the UK will receive grants of up to £500 and additional support to develop inclusive football activities.

The fund will primarily support girls and young people in deprived or underrepresented areas through local organisations to reduce inequalities in the participation of sport and physical activity. This includes culturally diverse communities, young people with disabilities, and young people from the LGBTQ+ community.
