Physical Activity Fund

The Physical Activity Fund is a funding opportunity for any CSSC member to trial a new physical activity with friends, family and work colleagues on a local level across the UK. Whether it's starting up a lunchtime exercise class in your workplace, organising weekly badminton sessions locally or even putting on a family fun day, the Physical Activity Fund can help!

This is a fantastic opportunity to get you, your friends and colleagues active. Funding is limited and will be distributed on a first come first served basis to whoever successfully meets the fund's criteria below.

What can CSSC fund?

  • A one-off activity or an ongoing activity for up to 8 weeks. Once the activity has ended, the success will be evaluated and you will need to think about how you can further support the activity for participants once it has ended
  • An activity that directly benefits both CSSC members and prospective members
  • Start-up costs e.g. the purchase of non-personal equipment, venue hire costs, coach/instructor fees.

What can't CSSC fund?

  • An activity organised to run longer than 8 weeks.
