Sport England Familes Fund Now Open

Expressions of interest now open for Sport England's latest funding programme to help families with children get active

This is a major new investment programme which will support families with children to get active and play sport together.

Organisations with a track record in changing behaviour with families in lower socio-economic groups are invited to submit an expression of interest for their latest funding programme.

MEETING THE CHALLENGE

There are three main outcomes Sport England want to achieve with this investment, including:

  • Increasing activity levels of families in lower socio-economic groups whose children are not doing the recommended 60 minutes a day of sport or physical activity
  • Support families to be active together throughout the week outside of school time
  • Deliver positive experiences so that children can build confidence in their ability to be active.

There are a number of challenges that need to be addressed to meet the aims of this funding and we want to work with partners who have a successful track record in changing behaviour with families in lower socio-economic groups.

We're looking to invest in projects that deliver what families really want and need – which means organisations don't necessarily need to be related to sport or physical activity.
