Sustainable Sports & Physical Activity Programme tender

Recreational sport and physical activity are one of the eight best investments for a whole-system approach to physical activity. Aligned with JU:MP, it is essential that programmes are developed and delivered with a specific focus on those who are most in need or have the lowest participation rates. Our insight work has shown that children enjoy organised and informal sport and active recreation, and want opportunities to participate.

We are looking for organisations to develop and deliver a sustainable sports/physical activity programme taking an asset-based, collaborative approach.
