Sport England's disability funds have now opened to applications with a total of £8 million to be provided to help more disabled people play more sport.
The funding comes as part of the organisation’s Inclusive Sport programme, which is designed to increase the number of disabled young people and adults regularly playing sport.
In the first round of Inclusive Sport, 44 projects benefited from over £10 million of National Lottery investment.
It was announced last month on the one year anniversary of the London 2012 Paralympics that Sport England would provide a further £8 million of funding aimed at giving disabled people across the country more opportunities to get into sport.
This includes investment of £7 million through a second round of the Inclusive Sport fund and £1 million in Get Equipped which is a new disability equipment fund.
Having now opened, round two of Inclusive Sport will be receiving applications until the deadline of 5pm on December 2, 2013.
"We hope to hear from more organisations with great insight, consultation and concepts to open up sport to disabled people to help make sport a practical lifestyle choice for everyone,” said a Sport England statement.
