Age & Opportunity aim to inspire people aged 50+ to live a dynamic life in which they are more active, more visible, more creative and more connected. Age & Opportunity recognises the impact that Covid-19 has had on older peoples’ participation in sport and physical activity over the last 2 years.
They have opened up applications for a grants to be used to encourage older people back to sport and their clubs.
