The Mayor of London wants to make London the most active and socially integrated city in the world. To help achieve this goal, the Mayor launched Sport Unites
, his multi-million-pound community sport investment programme.
As part of Sport Unites, over the next 12 months the Stronger Communities fund will award up to £5k to projects that use sport and physical activity (i) to bring Londoners together from different backgrounds, cultures and faiths, and (ii) to help socially isolated or lonely Londoners feel better connected to their local communities.
The mayor is offering funding of between £2,000 to £5,000, which will be awarded to projects that encourage and facilitate social integration between different groupsthrough physical activity.
Activities could include well recognised sports, such as ball games or athletics, but also more informal exercise based activity such as scoot events, walks, games such as Frisbee, tug of war etc.
