* Required Field

What kind of organisation are you (eg voluntary, local authority, private sector)? What are your current organisational objectives and how might they be linked to supporting health through physical activity? What is your current engagement with your local community?

Please tell us about your idea. How will you use your knowledge, resources, and skills to connect with inactive residents and enable them to become more active, in a way that supports their physical and/or mental health? Who will be your target audience? Where or when will the sessions take place? Please include as much detail as possible about your strategy and how the activity will run. Do you hold relevant qualifications and insurance? Please give details.

Please tell us how you have made sure that your idea is what local residents need. How have you consulted residents/partners and gained their opinion? Why will your offer be of interest and how many people do you expect to engage? What existing contacts will you use, and do you need support making certain contacts? How will you represent and reflect local aspirations?

What are the plans to sustain your activity once your start-up funds have been used? How do you plan to keep participants engaged in activities? Outline any exit routes that participants could access afterwards (eg local sports club/leisure centre/other activity)? What long-term impact will your activity have on the opportunities available in your area? How will this work and what would success look like?

Who will hold the finances and be accountable to audit? Are you a constitutionalised group or do you need support forming one? What will your start-up costs be and how will they be spent? What will your promotional costs be? Are these one-off costs or is there an ongoing element such as hire fees? How will ongoing costs be managed once the grant funds have been used?
