Sportivate - sport for 11-25 year olds

Sportivate is a national funding stream currently offered by Sport England to get more young people aged 11-25 years old more active. New projects are set up, after consultation with young people, community groups and sports clubs.They run for 6-8 weeks and aim to encourage participants to move more and have fun in a more relaxed sports environment.

If you have a project you would like to deliver that fits the Sportivate criteria including:

  •  a new project for young people aged 11-25 years.
  •  ideally targeting women, people with disabilities or the inactive (more funding is available for  these target groups).
  •  has a sustainable exit route after the initial 6-8 week project.

More projects will be starting soon, but for more information please call Cath Dale, Participation Officer on 07801 203551 or e mail
