Grants are between £1,000 and £5,000 to community organisations supporting the return of disabled people to sport and activity following the impact of Covid-19. The fund will be open until 31 May at 5pm.
How to apply for Toyota Parasport Funding
You must register your activity and add an opportunity on the Parasport website, this will provide you with a URL that must then be copied into page five of your application form.
Applications should be focused on returning disabled people to previously run activity. Or on enabling previous projects to adapt to resume delivery, when that’s possible. This fund is aimed at clubs/organisations that already exist, not to support new projects or start-ups.

What is the Fund?
The Toyota Parasport Fund was first launched in 2019. Jonnie Peacock, a double Paralympic champion teamed up with ParalympicsGB and Toyota (GB) PLC to support the campaign. The aim was to create one online destination. This would help disabled people discover and share physical activities best suited to them.
