Active Sussex’s Children & Young People Investment Fund now open

Active Sussex's Children & Young People Investment Fund now open

A new round of funding has opened for projects designed to get children and young people moving.

Active Sussex has opened this year’s Children & Young People Investment Fund, with the deadline for applications on Friday, October 25.

However, the closing date for applications may be earlier if enough high-quality applications come in before this date.

Andy Wright, the Strategic Relationship Manager for Children and Young People said: “Like last year, it is just a small pot of funding, so grants will be for targeted work between £500-£2000.”

Projects must start by Monday, November 4 to allow plenty of time for delivery and evaluation before the end of the funding year.

This is the final round of funding for Active Sussex’s current funding agreement with Sport England, and the active partnership is not guaranteed to receive any further delivery funding at this stage.

Therefore, it is even more important than ever that all projects:
1. Can be sustained beyond the funding period.
2. Include an element of workforce development.
3. Listen to and learn from the needs of the young people that you are engaging with.
4. Focus the investment on reaching young people that are less active from targeted groups – areas of high child deprivation, children with physical or learning disabilities, children from black or South Asian communities and young women and girls.

Once this has been checked to ensure it meets our criteria (further details can be found on our website) the applicant will receive an application form.
