This Girl Can Funding

//This Girl Can Funding

This Girl Can Campaign has been launched.  Check out their amazing video

With the campaign they have a pot of funding to grant:

This Girl Can grants, deadline 25 February 2020

National Lottery grants up to £10,000 are available from the “This Girl Can” fund.

The fund aims to support women aged 16 and over to get active by overcoming barriers for example a lack of opportunities, cost and availability of childcare.

What can be funded?

Activities that get women’s heart rate up, whatever form that may take: from Bollywood dance and walking to boxing and yoga.

Funding decisions on which ideas to support will be based on the difference that can be made with the funding rather than the items or services bought with it.

This Girl Can welcomes ideas with a short-term focus as well as those which will provide longer-term support to help women achieve sustainable behaviour change.


Complete the short form on the This Girl Can fund page to submit your project idea.

The deadline for submitting ideas is 25 February 2020.

If your project idea is successful, you will be invited to complete a Sport England small grants funding application and offered funding advice.

You can apply for this IN ADDITON TO SPORT ENGLAND SMALL GRANTS…which has no deadline so may be worth exploring this fund first.
