Active Communities Fund

In support of the Southampton Physical Activity and Sports Strategy, Southampton City Council have created the Active Communities Fund. This strategy aims to make physical activity a normal part of life for all and support excluded, inactive groups to increase participation in physical activity and sport.

£20,000 is available for this grant to support projects that enable inactive communities to become more physically active for their physical and mental health and well-being. A maximum amount of £5,000 can be awarded per applicant.

These projects could support young people, adults, or families, and will focus on supporting those who are least likely to be active including:

  • Women/girls
  • Lower income groups
  • Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities
  • People with long-term conditions or disabilities
  • LGBTQ+ community

The Active Communities Fund is now closed for applications.
