Financial support available for local organisations to improve their Marketing needs

Active Together is seeking to identify local groups and organisations who are supporting local residents improve their health and wellbeing and who would benefit from a marketing grant to support their promotional activities, whilst promoting the physical activity strapline of 'Let's Get Moving'.

Through the use of 'Let's Get Moving' messaging/strapline, help Active Together and partners broaden the reach of positive and consistent use of simple physical activity messaging. 'Let's Get Moving' is versatile and can be used by partners in multiple ways across digital and non-digital communications and materials. The Grant will also aim to help broaden our 'Let's Get Moving Champions' Programme.

Please note the fund is not for the delivery of physical activity, sport or wellbeing opportunities.
