The latest application window for Sportivate funding is now open. This window is for Phase 8 projects, to be delivered between October 2014 and March 2015.
‘Sportivate is a key part of Sport England’s London 2012 participation legacy plan which brings additional funding into grassroots sport. Sportivate offers young people aged 11-25, who are not participating regularly in sport, the opportunity to take part in 6 to 8 weeks of high quality coaching sessions and supports them to continue playing sport afterwards’.
The priority for Phase 8 is to fund projects which target one or more of the following groups: disabled participants, ethnic minorities, 19-25 year olds (17-25s for females). Proposals which don’t involve these groups should be really targeted and have a strong evidence of need. Further information and guidance on Sportivate can be found at http://www.greatersport.co.uk/projects-information/sportivate/.
Completed plans should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Monday 30th June. Suitable plans are then sent to GreaterSport, who in turn send them on to Sport England for final approval.
