0 Active Spaces programme

Active Spaces is a new national programme which will create activity programmes to inspire the most inactive communities to get active and use their local outdoor spaces. The programme will secure 50 new Fields in Trust protected sites across the UK and help increase participation in many different physical activities on local parks, playing fields and green spaces which will be protected for future generations to use and enjoy.

Parks and informal green spaces have an important role to play in helping deliver this activity agenda being the settings for entry-level activity. Inactive people don’t suddenly start playing sport in a formal setting, they walk, jog, cycle or play – and they need safe local green spaces to do this.

0 UK Youth’s Change Squad programme – applications accepted before June 2017

UK Youth’s Change Squad programme inspires young people to give back to their local communities.

Through the programme, young people are empowered to create, develop and deliver inspiring projects that they believe address local issues – helping them to grow, learn and practice vital life skills and have a voice in their community.
