Funding available for Norfolk schools
We’re pleased to announce that funding is available for local schools in Norfolk.
This funding is designed to help schools open their existing facilities so more young people can benefit from them. It also aims to support the wider community by partnering with organisations who can help deliver physical activity within these settings.
How much funding is available and what is it for?
We’ll be welcoming funding applications for up to £5000 through this scheme. There is a three year programme, and your school could receive the approved funding amount for each year.
The funding can be used for a variety of things, but is primarily aimed to:
- Encourage schools to offer up physical activity opportunities outside normal school hours (e.g. evenings, weekends and holidays).
- Increase swimming activities taking place both during and outside the school day.
It can also be used for other things such as coaches fees & expenses, equipment hire and more. You can find out more on our funding page.
Who can apply?
The funding is for schools in Norfolk. If you’re a decision maker in your school, please do get in touch to see how we can help you.
The funding aims to target the four identified key groups and encourage them to participate in more physical activity:
- People from lower socioeconomic communities
- Disabled people and those with long term health conditions
- Women and girls
- People from culturally diverse communities
Through using the funding amount wisely, we hope to benefit not only the above groups, but a whole host of communities who could benefit from taking part in more physical activity.
