Get Healthy, Get into Sport Fund
Aligned to Sport England's aspiration of getting more people participating in sport once a week, they have developed the 'Get Healthy, Get into Sport Fund' to help reach those pockets of the population who are the least active as this is where they can make a significant contribution to reducing health inequalities and produce the greatest potential health benefit.
The pilot funding will be distributed via one round with £5m available from this year. Lottery awards between £30,001 and £500,000 will be considered for this fund.
Sport England have identified that we will have an important role to play in helping potential applicants work up their plans. Similarly, there is a clear role for National Governing Bodies to be involved in discussions and ultimate delivery but we it is not anticipated that National Governing Bodies should be the applicant. Neither do they anticipate that individual sports clubs/organisations should make an application, unless they are clearly doing so on behalf of a wider partnership in a local area.
Deadline for expression of interest is Friday 26th October!!
