Groundwork UK, in partnership with Sport England and Clarion Housing Group, is supporting local organisations in two pilot locations (Salford, Huntingdon & North Cambridgeshire) to develop and deliver community-based activities to encourage people to become more active.
In mid-2017, community groups were given the opportunity apply for grants of up to £10k to support community-based organisations to develop new initiatives to encourage physical activity amongst people who currently do very little, helping them to embed longer-term sustained activity.
