What is Sportivate?
Organisations/clubs/bodies are encouraged to apply for Sportivate funding. Sportivate is a Lottery funded grants programme linked to the London 2012 Olympic Legacy Strategy ‘Places, People, Play’ and aims to get more 11-25 year olds into participating in sport on a regular basis.
Sportivate funding is available for projects to deliver six consecutive one hour weekly coaching sessions to give participants a taste of an activity they have not tried before, in order to engage them and encourage them to continue to participate in a community setting.
Delivery should be aimed at semi-sporty teenagers and young adults i.e. those who may not seek out sporting opportunities themselves and would not prioritise doing sport in their own time or those who are doing sport for a very limited amount of time.
There will be two opportunities to apply for funding each year until 2015
