Grants are available for group activities that support women aged 16 years and older to get active by overcoming barriers.

This Girl Can Community Fund is provided with funding from the National Lottery and administered by Sport England.

The funding is intended for local community projects that will contribute to overcoming the barriers some women face in getting active, whether from a lack of opportunities in their local area to the cost and availability of childcare.

Grants ranging from a few hundred pounds to up to £10,000 are available to support activities that increase the heart rate of women aged 16 years and over. Ideas for activities could be anything from Bollywood dancing, to walking, boxing, or yoga, etc. Groups are welcomed to submit their ‘big idea’.

Ideas can have a short-term focus or provide longer-term support to help women achieve sustainable behaviour change. The decisions on which ideas to support will be based on the difference that can be made with the funding rather than the items or services bought with it.

Not-for-profit organisations, voluntary or community clubs, registered charities or community interest companies can apply.

Consideration will also be given to:

  • Individuals who would like funding for a group activity which is not for individual gain.
  • Organisations established to make a profit provided their project does not realise a distributable profit.
  • Other social enterprises.
  • Schools.
  • Statutory bodies.

There is a two-stage application process.

The deadline for the submission of ideas is 25 February 2020.
