What is Opportunity Fund? 

Opportunity Fund is a hardship fund supporting young people who are residents of Active Local areas interested in taking up membership in a local sports club. This fund aims to target young people and families with financial barriers to being active and provide pathway routes for young people to join sustainable activities. 

Apply for up to £200 per application to support membership and equipment to take part in the activity. 

Please note that the sports club must make the application on behalf of the young person and the young person needs to be a resident of an Active Local area (Check the postcode tool below to assist with this).
