Get funding to get your neighbourhood active

Do you have a great idea to get people moving in your community?

Through our new Active Neighbourhoods project you could get up to £1,000 of funding to create and launch a new activity targeting inactive people in your area.

This could be a traditional exercise group or an activity like walking, gardening, or tidying your streets and parks – whatever gets your community moving!

You could spend the funding on set-up costs such as equipment, venue hire, and promotional materials to spread the word.

If you're already running an activity, you could apply for funding to pay for training to help you make even more of an impact in your community, for example through a course to develop your coaching skills or to make your activity more accessible.

The Active Neighbourhood project, delivered in partnership with Norwich City Council and Healthy Norwich, aims to give communities a helping hand to become more physically active in a sustainable way. This can help to improve health and wellbeing in your area, reducing long-term health conditions and easing the pressure on local GP services.

The project is running in the Mile Cross and Catton Grove neighbourhoods of Norwich and is open to individuals, clubs, societies, and all kinds of community groups.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak the deadline for Active Neighbourhoods funding applications has been extended. Funding will be confirmed once restrictions on public gatherings have been relaxed, after which dates for activities to commence will be agreed. You are still welcome to make your application in the meantime. Any queries please contact
