Northamptonshire YOUth Fund Launched

Northamptonshire Sport has just released some exciting NEW funding to engage 14-24 year olds in Physical Activity.

The Northamptonshire YOUth Fund is open for applications until the 15th December.

The fund will have a focus on engaging the inactive through doorstep sports and physical activity and creating the offer that has the 5 'rights' embedded:

right price, right time, right place, right people, right style

With the winter period approaching we are keen to support the following age ranges:-

  • 10-14 year old's
  • 14-18 year old's
  • 18-24 year old's.

*extra weighting will go on applications focused on residents aged 14-24 years of age

We have priority audiences including:

  • Lower Socio-economic groups
  • Ethnically diverse communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with long-term health conditions.

Consideration will also be given to applications aimed specifically at

  • Women and Girls
  • Areas with higher levels of Anti-Social Behaviour

We will help you design clubs with young people at the heart of planning. We will work with you to take into account their barriers, motivations and attitudes to sport and physical activity.


  • Northamptonshire Sport and StreetGames are holding an 'Doorstep sport reboot' workshop on the 25th November. We would expect organisations interested in applying to attend.
  • Applications close on the 15th December and we hope to have a decision made by the 23rd December.
  • We would hope that delivery would start in February 2022.
