Sport England Small Grant opportunity for Rural Communities

Community FirstCommunity First is working with Sport England and Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) to run a pilot project in 2018 which promotes physical activity, sport and healthy lifestyles in rural communities. It focuses on getting inactive people to become more active.

The project pilots a very local approach to the distribution of the Sport England Small grants which have the following criteria:

  1. Rural communities as defined by the Government’s urban rural classification.
  2. Applications for sports and physical activity that traditionally receive lower levels of funding.
  3. Applications for sport and physical activity for the over 55s and multi-generational activity.
  4. Sport and physical activity for people over 14 years old, except where it is part of multigenerational activity.
  5. Activity that is developed from a local community space or asset which may be the village hall.

The pilot aims to distribute 16 grants to local groups including community buildings and youth clubs of up to £10,000

WASP are supporting Community First in this and would like to hear from anyone who would be interested in working with a local community or Village Hall to establish and deliver a local project. If you are interested in being involved or have an idea for a project you would like to develop please contact either Steve Boocock steve@wiltssport.org.
