Do you want to increase membership of your sporting club? Or are you looking to start a brand new club? Need an investment to take your club to the next level? Or have you identified a need for a particular sport? Sportivate might be the answer.
Available through us, Sportivate is a Sport England funding opportunity for any organisation that delivers sport and physical activity, to capture the excitement of sport as part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games. It runs until 2017 and Sport England could invest over £375,000 in Herefordshire and Worcestershire to retain 3,525 people into sport in that time.
Sportivate funding may be available to provide opportunities for teenagers and young adults aged 14-25 to receive six to eight weeks of coaching in a sport of their choice and encourage them into regular participation.
We are working alongside voluntary groups, national governing bodies, sports clubs and community groups with the aim of providing accessible, affordable, appropriate and attractive sporting opportunities for everyone.
