VicHealth’s Active Club Grants make an important contribution to Victorian communities by supporting local sport clubs to provide more opportunities for less active Victorians to participate in sport.
Building on momentum generated by the successful This Girl Can – Victoria campaign, this new funding will help local sport clubs across Victoria deliver more opportunities for women and girls to get active.
The grants will also support social, flexible and accessible sport programs as well as creating more opportunities for people from disadvantaged communities to take part in sport.
VicHealth funding is available to support clubs to implement initiatives that will engage more women and girls in sport, including establishing new teams, programs or competitions specifically for women and girls.
Participation in social and modified forms of sport is also a focus, this includes flexible, social and less structured opportunities, with a focus on fun and social interaction.
Modified sport includes making changes to sports activities to best suit the needs and abilities of inactive or somewhat active people and increase the accessibility of activities to a wider audience.
The application process for the Active Club Grants has been simplified to make it easier for clubs. To apply, please visit www.vichealth.vic.gov.au/activeclub and submit your application before the closing date on 31 August 2018 at 4pm.
