Community Fund

Active Slough Community Fund launched

Pots of up to £750 are available this year only for the new Active Slough Junior Community Fund and Active Slough Teen Community Fund.

We believe sport and physical activity has power to provide physical, mental and social benefits to young people and children in Slough, which in turn can have a positive impact on our local community.

This funding pot is directly targeting those who are physically inactive in Slough. To be classified as inactive they must be participating in less than four x 30 minute bouts of sport/physical activity per month (excluding school curriculum PE/Games).

The funding can ONLY be used for:

  • coaching / instructor / leader fees
  • coordinator time (including collecting and uploading monitoring data)
  • facility / venue fees
  • equipment and training (to support sustainability)
  • marketing / promoting
  • events linked to the project
  • incentives, prizes, t-shirts etc. (Any marketing, incentives or prizes must be developed in agreement with the Active Slough team).

This funding must be used to support a new project, which delivers a minimum of six sessions (we will not fund existing activity or groups and organisations we have funded in the past 18 months). This can involve either a single sport/activity or multiple sports/activities.

We welcome applications from community groups, sports clubs, charities, voluntary organisations, youth groups, leisure providers, national governing bodies, Scout groups, schools and educational organisations. The project must be completed by 30 March 2018.

Application forms
