Sport Hampshire & IoW


Sportivate is a National Lottery funded programme, that aims to encourage inactive young people, aged 11 to 25 to become regularly active. Organisations can apply for grant funding to run 6 to 8 week sporting activities for this age range.

Over the first 4 years of the programme (April 2011 - March 2015), over 18,000 young people have taken part in sport across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight through Sportivate, with over 14,000 attending regularly.

If you are interested in applying for funding, Sport England's Youth Insight Pack will help you to design introductory sessions that appeal to inactive young people. Every project must also offer a clear exit route that makes it easy for young people to keep participating in their chosen sport.
