Projects funded to use physical activity to change lives of young people

Over £2 million in Go! London funding has now been awarded in principle to 44 sport and physical activity projects across the capital following the first wave of grant applications.

Earlier this year, Sport England partnered with the Mayor of London and the London Marathon Foundation to launch the £19.5m community sports fund – aimed at improving the lives of under-served young Londoners aged 4-24 – by contributing £7.5m of National Lottery money.

Charities, youth groups, social enterprises and faith groups were invited to apply for grants of up to £150,000 to improve existing sport and physical activity programmes or deliver new services, with the first of these now awarded.
