This page summarises a number of funding opportunities that could help organisations who are looking to deliver sporting, physical activity and healthy living projects here in the West of England. The funding landscape is continually changing with funding streams opening and closing, therefore we have focused the information below on those that are relevant to sport and physical activity and those without a short term fixed closing date or deadline.
