The Movement Fund offers funding support to improve physical activity opportunities for the people and communities who need it the most. 

The fund, similar to the previous Together Fund, will look to focus on supporting projects that aim to get more people active, reducing the number of inactive people and tacking inequalities. 

There is a particular interest in projects that work with the following groups:

  • People living on low incomes.
  • Disabled people or those with long-term health conditions.
  • Older people.
  • People from culturally diverse communities.
  • Pregnant women and parents with very young children.
  • Girls aged 5-16.
  • LGBTQ+ people.
  • People who are in foster care.
  • People who provide care without pay.


How much funding is available?

Grants between £300 and £15,000


Who can apply?
