Meet the Funder (London Sports on Sports England's Children and Families Fund)
Sports England is launching a new Children and Families Fund, investing up to £40 million into projects which offer new opportunities for families with children to get active and play sport together. Up to £10 million has been allocated for the first round of the Families Fund, which will open 19 May 2017.
They are focusing on families with children aged 5-15, with a particular emphasis on low income families and families living in areas of high deprivation, and also looking to target families where children are not active for at least 60 minutes each day. They will look to invest in and work with 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 anticipated size of funding for projects from our Families Fund will be from £50,000 up to £500,000 for the right project. Read more
London Sports will be presenting on the fund here at CVA on Friday, 19th May 2017 (10.30 am to 12.00 pm), and will be available to answer your questions on this funding opportunity for local children, young people and families' groups. This will be followed by a networking session.
