Helping Women and Girls Get Active

Created 4 months ago, updated 4 months ago

National funding to support projects encouraging female participation.

Projects which help women and girls take part in sport or physical activity are to be supported through a £300,000 fund.

The Scottish Government and Sport Scotland are calling for applications led by Scottish Governing Bodies of Sport (SGBs) or Local Authorities, as part of a programme to encourage more women and girls to participate. The launch of the fund comes during the second annual Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week. Funding awards will range between £10,000 and £30,000. The funding builds on the success of the Sporting Equality Fund launched in 2017, with investment going to projects including wheelchair basketball in Glasgow, netball across Scotland and ‘bike-packing’ adventures in the Highlands.
