This fund is for projects that focus on using activity as a tool to engage and support young people up to the age of 25. Applications that use sport in its widest sense including traditional, informal sports and activities will be considered and encouraged to apply. Click here to read more and apply. 
  • Together Fund - We are excited to launch the Together Fund! In partnership with Voscur we will distribute £380,000 of funding to community organisations across the West of England! Our collaboration brings together a focussed plan to support partners who can respond to the guiding principles of the Together Fund. Click here to find out more, including how to apply.
