Coronavirus, an update from Active Cornwall

Sport England launch NEW funding opportunities!

Sport England - Towards an Active Nation

Since Sport England launched their new strategy 'Towards an Active Nation' they have been doing a lot of work to develop new funding programmes and are beginning to launch new opportunities.

Through the link below they have explained when funding will become available and when you can download detailed information about how you can apply for funding or other advice and help.

Launched already are the 'Tackling Inactivity' fund, helping people who are inactive is one of their major priorities. Over the next four years, they are dedicating at least 25 per cent of their total resources to tackling inactivity, and the 'Facilities' fund, the places where people play sport have a really big impact on a person's experience and likelihood they will come back regularly. That's why they are continuing to invest in all types of facilities, especially multi-sport for major strategic investments.

You can hear more about these new programmes & opportunities direct from Sport England!

Come along to our workshop where we have Nick Lockwood from Sport England down in Cornwall to talk through these new programmes and advise both professional and local community organisations of their new focus and timescales for the scheme.
