We're here to support communities with the things that are most important to them when it comes to being physically active.
Our Small Grants Programme is a quick way to apply for funding between £300 and £15,000.
You can apply for funding to deliver a new or existing activity, that will support inactive and less active people become more active by doing at least one of these things:
Recover and reinvent: recovering from the biggest crisis in a generation, to provide sport and physical activity opportunities that meet the needs of different people.
Connecting communities: focus on sport and physical activity’s ability to make places better to live and bring people together to be physically active.
Positive experiences for children and young people: a focus on positive experiences as the foundations for a long and healthy life.
Connecting with health and wellbeing: strengthening the connections between sport, physical activity, health, and wellbeing, so more people feel the benefits and advocate for an active life.
Active environments: creating and protecting the places and spaces that make it easier for people to be active.
