Posted: Wed, 21 Oct 2015 15:00
Northamptonshire Sport have launched a new funding programme to help increase the number of women participating in regular sport or physical activity.
The #NorthantsGirlsCan Fund aim to support groups, organisations and clubs who wish to engage and provide regular and sustained sport and physical activity opportunities for women aged 25 years and above.
The programme is part of This Girl Can - a nationwide campaign developed by Sport England and delivered in partnership with a wide range of organisations, which aims to get women and girls moving, regardless of shape, size and ability.
Northamptonshire Sport has created the #NorthantsGirlsCan Fund to provide initial 'start up' grants for up to £500 for organisations across Northamptonshire to access, with the aim of providing more accessible opportunities for women aged 25 years and over.
The project or activity must run for a minimum of 6 weeksand can continue for up to 12 weeks, leading to a local exit route or sustainable session. The project must be a new initiative or be above and beyond the current provision the organisation or club are offering.
