Localgiving - Magic Little Grants 2019 - Sports participation and excercise
Created: 02/08/2019, Updated: 08/08/2019
Magic Little Grants 2019 is now live! Thanks to an award of £550,000 from Postcode Community Trust, funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, they are able to provide more grants than ever before.
This fund gives local charities and community groups the chance to apply online for a £500 grant to deliver projects across Great Britain that encourage people to be physically active. Successful projects will support and inspire people to participate in sports or exercise with the primary aim of improving the physical health of participants.
With its simple 10-minute application process, the Magic Little Grants fund, reduces the work required for local organisations to access the funding they need to launch or strengthen their services.
Applicants must either be in their first year of operation or have an annual income under £250,000. Preference will be given to projects that encourage social cohesion and help vulnerable people to overcome barriers to participation in physical activities.
Funding can be used to launch new projects, support existing ones, or cover core costs associated with ongoing work.
