Working with young people? You can access funding through Satellite Clubs to set up new physical activity sessions that are fun and free for teenagers to attend.

Satellite Club LogoOur 2020-21 Satellite Clubs programme works with local sport and physical activity clubs that are designed around the needs of young people and provides them with positive, enjoyable experiences, making it easier for them to become and remain physically active.

  • The programme delivery is aimed at young people aged 14-19 years.
