We’re making up to £1 million available to diversify coaches and volunteers in the sport and physical activity sector.
Our Workforce Diversity Great Ideas Fund will be open for a month, from today, and we want to hear from anyone wanting to engage women and/or black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) communities in volunteering or coaching opportunities.
With both Coaching Week and Volunteers’ Week taking place now, the National Lottery funding has been allocated to address the fragmented workforce – partly comprised of coaches and volunteers – that is currently lacking diversity.
THIS FUND HAS NOW CLOSED
Our ambition is to help ensure people working in sport and physical activity are skilled, motivated, valued, equipped for their role, are enjoying a positive experience and is representative of our diverse nation.
Up and down the country, amazing people are doing amazing things to support people in their community to become more active.
They are the unsung heroes, the backbone of physical activity. We know that these people make the difference and we're hoping to help these people to do more and help others to get involved.
