We’re an arms-length body of government responsible for growing and developing grassroots sport and getting more people active across England.
We were established by Royal Charter – which is an instrument of incorporation granted by the Queen – in 1996 as the English Sports Council. We began operating as Sport England the following year.
We’re building an active nation through a combination of National Lottery funding and grant-in-aid from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, which classifies us as a non-departmental government body. Around two-thirds of our funding comes from lottery players.
Sport England invest funds in British Wrestling to support the governing body to increase participation and deliver a talent pathway to ensure wrestlers can reach their potential.
