Get Active Children and Young People Funding Opportunities Here you'll find a summary of current Children and Young People funding opportunities available to clubs and community groups in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Living Sport distributes children and young people funds on behalf of Sport England.Children and Young People Inclusive Futures Fund This fund is centred around co-production of projects for underserved groups of young people. Projects must demonstrate youth voice at the heart of the project. Grants are available so groups and organisations can deliver activity through co-production of extra–curricular physical activity opportunities with young people most likely to be inactive, with a focus on secondary age young people. Funding can cover coach or instructor costs, facility hire, equipment, qualifications, marketing and training opportunities to encourage sustainability of projects. Projects must be delivered over a minimum of 12 weeks, meeting minimum operating standards, with projects demonstrating sustainability plans post project.Funding up to £1200 available.Youth Empowerment Projects Our youth empowerment projects delivered both within targeted schools and community groups, give young people an opportunity to develop new youth led sport and physical activity, shaped around their needs, within after school environments or within the local community. The project involves delivery of workshops to targeted groups of young people, helping them to understand barriers and motivations to their participation in sport and physical activity; and an opportunity to shape a new sporting offer that fits their needs, being the right offer, delivered in the right style, at the right location and cost.
