The Better Communities Fund is being run by GLL a charitable social enterprise that manages leisure centres, libraries and other community services. The fund supports projects that help to get communities active and aims to help everyone to enjoy sport and physical activities, and to ensure that children and young people experience the benefits of a healthy lifestyle that participating in sport and physical activity can support.
Any non-profit local community group, charity or social enterprise in an area where GLL operates can use Crowdfunding website “Spacehive” to crowdfund for projects that encourage people to be more active. The fund provides up to £2,500 of matched funding that is pledged directly to a project on Spacehive.
A total of £40,000 is available and applications can be submitted at any time.
