Active Ageing Fund – Sport England – Deadline noon on the 13th February 2017


Sport England begins a nationwide search for brilliant ideas to support inactive older people.

We’ve put tackling inactivity right at the heart of our new strategy Towards an Active Nation – which means over the next four years, we’re going to triple the amount we invest in helping inactive people become active.

As a first step, we will be investing up to £10 million into projects that help inactive older people get active through our Active Ageing Fund.

We’re looking for both new partners and ones we’ve worked with before who are willing to work with us to co-design innovative, different and experimental approaches that put older people at the heart of our efforts.

The Active Ageing Prospectus provides you with full details on how to apply. It gives further guidance about what we are looking to achieve, the kind of projects we are interested in and details the research and insight that we have gathered around inactive older adults.

Please read it carefully and use it to help you develop your project ideas. We would also recommend that you read and use the following documents to help you as you prepare your expression of interest:

You need to submit your project ideas to us by noon on Monday 13 February 2017 by completing the online form that can be accessed here.

A PDF copy of the form can be found in the documents below to help you develop your answers.

Please take the time to read the prospectus and frequently asked questions documents.
