The vision of this fund is to support schools to promote the wellbeing of students by encouraging good daily and/or weekly physical activity habits.  The programme should create and facilitate a wellbeing and physical activity culture, by promoting the message that physical activity should be incorporated into everyday life.

This fund offers a financial incentive to schools to increase their capacity to promote inclusive and non-competitive activities.

Schools can access funding of up to €2,500 to:

  • Upskill teacher(s) to expand the range of recreational sports activities offered in the school.
  • Purchase sports equipment to support the delivery of inclusive, recreational and non-competitive activities.
  • Engage a tutor to deliver recreational non-competitive and inclusive sports activities.
  • Implement a school programme that fosters the development of link with a local sports club.

The closing date for applications is 5pm 22nd October 2021.

This funding has been secured through the Sport Ireland Restart & Renewal Covid-19 Grant.
This initiative supports the development of programmes in schools that can advance sport and physical activity participation post-COVID 19.
