The Age & Opportunity Active National Grant Scheme is open for applications with a closing date of Friday 24th February 2023.

Grants are available to all eligible local clubs, groups, care settings and organisations that promote increased participation in recreational sport or physical activity for older people as a main element of their activities. Umbrella bodies, or their agents, are not eligible for funding under this grant scheme. An exception to this are Local Sports Partnerships who are eligible to apply.

Funding for sports clubs will only be considered if the application specifically relates to older people. Grants are made available for sport and physical activity for older people and the overall club membership of applicants must be such that older people will be the beneficiaries of the grant monies.

For further information on the grant criteria please refer to the Terms & Conditions document attached, which will also appear on the website.
