Sportivate application deadline draws near
August 8, 2011

The deadline to apply for funding for children and young people's sports projects in Lincolnshire is drawing near.

Nearly £400,000 is available for sports projects in the county through a national Sport England project called 'Sportivate', and the next deadline is Friday 19 th August 2011.

Sportivate is a national programme managed by Sport England and delivered through County Sports Partnerships across the country. It hopes to use the London 2012 Games to encourage "semi-sporty" teenagers and young adults to take part in sport over the next four years.

Lincolnshire Sports Partnership has £395,000 to allocate to 'Sportivate' projects between July 2011 and May 2015, and sports clubs and organisations are encouraged to apply.

Lucy Blakey, Children and Young People's Officer at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said:

"Sportivate not only provides a great opportunity to encourage young people to get involved in sport; it provides a huge financial incentive for sports clubs, schools, leisure facilities and others, to deliver more sport across Lincolnshire.

"We hope that over the next four years we see an increase in sports participation in Lincolnshire as a result of Sportivate, and we don't want clubs and organisations to miss out on this opportunity for funding."

The overall aim of Sportivate is for 300,000 participants aged 14 - 25 to complete weekly sessions over the four years. It is hoped that 120,000 of those young people will continue to play sport regularly.

Funding will be allocated at £30.00 per head and priority will be given to projects which target minority groups such as women and girls, and disability sport.

Sports clubs, schools, community groups, NGBs, Local Authorities, Universities, youth clubs, 6 th Form and Further Educational Colleges, leisure facilities and workplaces targeting 14 - 25 year olds can apply for funding.

£15,000 has already been allocated to 18 projects in the county, and the final deadline to apply for funding for October 2011 to March 2012 is Friday 19 th August.
