Sport England Families Fund

21 July, 2017

Our Families Fund – Supporting Families to be Active Together will invest in projects that deliver what families really want and need.

Organisations with a track record in changing behaviour with families in lower socio-economic groups are invited to submit an expression of interest for our latest funding programme.

Why we're investing in families

Our Families Fund Prospectus will provide you with all the information you need to know to apply, including:

  • Who we want to reach through this investment
  • What we aim to achieve
  • The challenges that need tackling
  • The type of projects we are particularly interested in
  • The application process.

There are currently 7 million children aged 5 to 15 in England – and nearly 4 in 5 are not doing the recommended daily amount of exercise.

The Chief Medical Officer in England recommends that children do at least 60 minutes of activity every day. For one reason or another, this isn’t the case for the majority of young people.

We want to change that.
