Up to £10 million has been allocated for the first round of the Families Fund, which focuses on families with children aged 5 to 15. There is a particular emphasis on low income families, families living in areas of high deprivation and families whose children are not active for at least 60 minutes each day.
The funder will look to invest in and work with organisations, both sporting and non-sporting, who understand children and families and have a proven track record of working with them. Potential examples include housing associations, family-focused charities, parent support organisations and outdoor activity providers.
The anticipated size of funding for projects from the Families Fund will be from £50,000 up to £500,000 for the right project.
