Suitability checker

To help check if your project and organisation are suitable for our funding, we've produced a short quiz.

Applying to the Movement Fund


The Movement Fund supports projects that promote physical activity, including active travel, walking, cycling, dance, fitness, and sporting activities.

However, there are certain things we don't fund:

• High-risk sports: unless the organisation or coaches are affiliated to the relevant National Governing Body

• Artistic dance activities: Where the main purpose is for artistic or performance purposes

• Children under 5 years old: We don't fund projects benefiting children under five years old, unless they are part of a larger project primarily benefiting those aged 5 years or older

• Statutory responsibilities: We don't cover costs for activities that are statutory responsibilities, such as curriculum time delivery in schools.

Occasionally we fund other physical activities but only where they are part of a project that supports a recognised sport or activity.
