The scheme offers financial support to clubs and aims to assist in the implementation of locally-developed, well-planned initiatives designed to increase participation in recreational sport and physical activity by older people. In particular, the scheme is aimed at:
• assisting local clubs/organisations/care settings to enhance existing opportunities for their members in recreational sport and physical activity;
• assisting local clubs/organisations/care settings to start new initiatives geared at involving older people in recreational sport and physical activity;
• encouraging all sports clubs to provide new initiatives within their clubs aimed at getting older people back to their sport;
Grants are available to all eligible local clubs, groups, care settings and organisations that promote increased participation in recreational sport or physical activity for older people as a main element of their activities. If your club is interested in exploring this grant please click here and/or contact [email protected] if you have any further questions or queries.
We aim to have a couple of packages ready for clubs early next week (W/C 5th February) around Bat and chat and Table tennis at home that may be of use.
