Launching in mid-April
A £2 million pot of funding will support larger projects – up to a maximum of £500,000. This will be for people who have little disposable income. They live very ordered lives but find it hard to build physical activity into their lives, or they feel being active is just not for them.
A second £1m pot is for projects between £10,000 and £100,000. This fund will focus on people who are far less likely to have a steady income, or any income at all, living more chaotic lives with additional challenges. For example, they may have an offending background, be dealing with alcohol or drug misuse, or facing mental health issues.
