Who is it for?

  • Targeted provision for inactive 11-25 year olds who do not seek out sporting opportunities themselves or do not usually prioritise doing sport in their own time.
  • Priorities for this commission round are Women & Girls, Disability, Deprived Communities and projects which seek to create additional social change.
  • We will only fund projects where 80% of more of their target audience is inactive

*inactive young people are those who take part in sport or physical activity less than 3 times per month*

What is it about?

  • Minimum of 6 weeks and maximum of 8 week blocks of sporting activities to be delivered
  • Projects will need to ensure that enough participants are targeted and engaged in the activities to reach a retain target
  • There is no minimum or maximum amount of funding that can be applied for (dependant on number of participants retained)
  • At the end of the project, participants will be supported and directed into a local club of alternative sports provision for them to continue participating in sport.
