Localgiving Launches Magic Little Grants for 2019

The Magic Little Grants Fund provides local charities and community groups the opportunity to access funding to deliver engaging physical activities, which help to overcome barriers to participation.

The aim of the fund is to support the work of organisations that are engaging hard to reach individuals, encouraging them to take part in physical activity to help improve their physical health.

There is a total funding pot of £550,000 for 2019 (the largest yet) with grants of up to £500 for groups with an income of less than £250,000.

The funding can be used to support the general running costs of new and existing sports and physical activities. For example, this could include facilities hire, kit and equipment, coaching qualifications, other volunteer expenses etc.

Although applications can be made at any time and are reviewed on a monthly basis, groups could wait up to two months to receive an update on the status of their application.

The deadline for applications is midnight on 30 November 2019.

More information about this funding opportunity and the application process is available on the GRANTfinder funding information platform.
