Summer Sports Activities Fund

Monday, 20 May 2019 - 9:00am

Grants of £5,000 to £10,000 are available for projects that use sport over the school summer holidays to engage young people who are at risk of getting involved in crime. Projects should be completed within six weeks and must be completed within the school summer holidays.

What can I get a Summer Activity grant for?

They are looking for initiatives that:

  • Provide convenient, affordable, local activities for ‘at-risk’ Young Londoners.They classify an ‘at-risk’ young person as someone who has previously committed a crime or is likely to commit a crime. They would expect to see how ‘at-risk’ young people have been referred or recruited to your project.
  • Primarily take place in areas with a high rate of Serious Youth Violence.
  • Geographical areas with higher rates of Serious Youth Violence will be prioritised.
  • Projects that use sport (and can include additional means such as art, wellbeing activities etc.) to engage young people at risk of getting involved in crime.
  • Sport means various kinds of physical activities that bring people entertainment, enjoyment and relaxation, from traditional sports to alternative activities such as dance, yoga and running.
