Do you have a great idea about how to engage women and/or black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) communities into quality volunteering or coaching opportunities and need some investment to make it happen?
If so, we've set up a new fund with up to £1 million of National Lottery funding to invest and we want to hear from you.
Every year, millions of people in England give up their time to enable others to take part in sport and physical activity.
We know that people make the difference, especially in the local community, and we want to do more to help get more diverse people involved.
So we're keen to find ways that we can support more women and/or BAME people into the sport and physical activity coaching and volunteering workforce, and to help ensure they have a really positive experience.
