Spirit of 2012, the London 2012 legacy charity, has launched a new Sport Challenge Fund, offering a grant opportunity for a single project that opens up sport or physical activity to an under-represented group. Any organisation working to improve wellbeing and decrease social isolation for people who may be disabled, suffering from long-term health conditions or are part of an under-represented ethnic group or gender can apply. Spirit of 2012 will award £200,000 to a single project that increases both physical and mental wellbeing by bringing people together to be active and offer opportunity for social contact. Preference will be given to applications that focus on a beneficiary group not usually targeted with sports and physical activity provision.
Expressions of Interest as a first stage of the application process must be submitted by 9am, 19th February 2018.
