#GetYourKitOn for Grassroots Sport

Cuts of 25-40% to sport's funding from the Exchequer are widely expected in the Spending Review on 25 November. Reductions at this level for the Department For Culture, Media and Sport would cost community sport significant amounts of investment

We want everybody to show their support for grassroots sport and how much they value government investment into the sector.

With widespread support from the sector, we're campaigning to protect funding for grassroots sport. 

Visit www.getyourkiton.team to upload your photo of you in your sports kit to support grassroots sport. You can also post a direct message to George Osborne telling him why he should protect sports funding. You'll also be able to download images and infographics to share on your digitial channels and grow the #GetYourKitOn team.
