Applications are now open for the Greenwich Get Active (GGA) Small Grants Fund.

GGA Small Grants of up to £5,000 are available to clubs, community organisations and charities to launch new physical activity and sport programmes in Royal Greenwich. 

Councillor Adel Khaireh, Cabinet Member for Equality, Culture and Communities, said: “One of our priorities as a council is to ensure that people's health supports them in living their best life.  

“We believe that everyone in our borough should be able to access the physical, social and mental benefits of taking part in sport and physical activity. 

“The Greenwich Get Active Small Grants Fund aims to remove the barriers to getting active, by funding projects that target under-represented groups within our sporting communities. 

“If you’re part of a group interested in applying, come along to one of our information meetings to find out more.”  

Application Criteria 

Funded projects must be delivered within the borough and must demonstrate benefit to its residents. 

Only one award per group or organisation will be made within each round of funding. 

Applications should show how your project will support the objectives of the Greenwich Get Active Physical Activity and Sport Strategy, listed below: 

  • to increase participation among people in Royal Greenwich by embedding physical activity into everyday life 

  • to increase awareness of the physical activity and sport on offer in the borough 

  • to tackle inactivity among underrepresented groups in Royal Greenwich 

  • to use physical activity and sport to prevent and manage health conditions, improve wellbeing and reduce social isolation.
