Sign this petition to help #SaveOurSports

Volleyball England is urging the Volleyball Family to sign this petition in support of the sport and physical activity sector’s #SaveOurSports campaign.

So far 15,000 have put their name to the petition, which puts pressure on the Government to instigate emergency funding to ensure sport clubs, fitness and leisure facilities - the lifeblood of communities across the nation – can remain open and survive the coming difficult months.

As the petition has surpassed 10,000 signatories, it will receive an official response from the Government, but we need to reach 100,000 signatures for it to be considered for a debate in Parliament.

Use the following link to sign the petition. Please share it with your friends, family and fellow club members too: petition.parliament.uk/petitions/553619

#SaveOurSports

Grassroots sports, fitness and leisure facilities are facing collapse due to Covid-19.

Without emergency Government support, like that given to the arts sector, community sport and the UK's physical and mental health faces a bleak future that will be difficult to recover from, damaging Britain’s ability to Build Back Better.

Action is needed now to ensure everyone continues to have the opportunity to play the sport they love and be physically active. A Sports Recovery Fund will help achieve this.
