Children from some of the poorest areas in England will have the chance to get physically active by trying a wider range of sports that may not have traditionally been accessible in their area.

Sport England have awarded £500,000 of National Lottery funding to UK charity Sport Inspired to help more than 9,000 children, young people and families live happier, healthier lives through sport.

The charity, which was set up in 2008, delivers programmes in places where children have the fewest opportunities, bringing together different parts of the community to create longer-term change.

Following one-day sports festivals – events that give young people the opportunity to try a range of activities like parkour, martial arts and fencing – regular and sustainable sports programmes are set up in schools.
