Sport England is launching a new ‘Families Fund’ to offer new opportunities for families with children to do sport and physical activity together.
A particular focus will be to support parents on low incomes with children aged 5-15 living in areas of high deprivation; and to make sure their children have positive experiences of sport and physical activity. Sport England will be seeking applications from organisations, both sporting and non-sporting, who understand children and families and have a proven track record of working with them. Potential examples include housing associations, family-focused charities, parent support organisations and outdoor activity providers.
The new fund launches opens on 6th July and the closing date for applications will be 3pm on 31st August 2017.
