Age & Opportunity Are Welcoming Older People Back To Sport And Physical Activity

Age & Opportunity have opened their Active National Grant Scheme for 2022. The grant scheme offers financial supports (provided by Sport Ireland) to local clubs, groups, organisations with the aim of promoting increased participation in sport or physical activity for older people.

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the lives of older people and has affected their ability to take part in recreational sport and physical activity in the last two years. This grant will allow groups to focus on encouraging older people to start taking part in or return to some form of physical activity. The 2022 Grant is also open to public and private nursing homes and day care settings to assist those who have been impacted by COVID-19.
