Use Your Energy Funding - Tameside

Aims/priorities: Use Your Energy is an Action Together programme funded by Sport England which aims to work with Tameside groups to engage and enable children and young people aged 5-18 years to become more active, more often. We have money to invest in your active ideas!  Your group can apply for up to £500 to make your active idea a reality.  Use this form to tell us more about your idea, how it will work and how much it will cost. What do we mean by an Active Idea?- A sustainable idea which helps children and young people who are currently less active to try something that will appeal and engage them to become more active. We understand that not everyone enjoys being part of a sports team or club, so we are looking to hear from groups about how we can support ideas to enable children and young people to become more engaged, more active and healthier whatever their skills or abilities.

There are lots of ways we can become more active such as volunteering, walking, cycling, swimming, dancing, water sports, nature trails, conservation, gaming, home work-outs, boxing, skateboarding, scootering etc. Also there are lots of places that we can use to become active such as youth clubs, school clubs*, gym’s, parks and open spaces - even your local street!
