Active Awards for Sport Programme Re-open

The Active Awards for Sport Programme is OPEN for applications.

Active Awards for Sport is a Lottery funded small grants programme primarily aimed at grassroots community based sport. The programme aims to prioritise sports clubs, community groups and governing bodies of sport, especially those based on areas of greatest need. In particular the programme will look to contribute to “Promoting Equality, Tackling Poverty and Social Exclusion.”

As part of a three-year Giro D’Italia legacy, to build on the great work which has already happened and to support further development within cycling, Sport Northern Ireland, through Active Awards for Sport, is also seeking applications for Cycling specific projects. This will run along-side the main Active Awards for Sport application process which will be open to all eligible groups as in previous rounds.

Who Can Apply

  •  Governing Bodies of Sport (recognised by Sport Northern Ireland)
  • Sport Clubs (must be affiliated to a Governing Body of Sport recognised by Sport Northern Ireland)
  • Charities
  • Parent Teacher Associations
  • Community/Voluntary Groups
