Grants of up to £50,000 per year for a maximum of three years are available for projects that target young people who are interested in undertaking social actions such as volunteering. The Potentials fund aims to create opportunities that get people helping others from an early age and is particularly interested in projects which can engage 10-14 year olds. The aim is to use social action in sport as a way to support young people who are struggling with issues like bullying, social isolation, anxiety and low self-esteem.
Sport England want to create opportunities that get people helping others from an early age. Many of those who take part in social action regularly started when they were as young as 10.
Sport attracts many young people and can provide a springboard to social action. Just over half of young people prefer sport to any other volunteering pastimes.
Sport England are keen to test bold new approaches with our Potentials Fund to get young people involved in social action that includes sport and physical activity – especially those who might not have been involved in sport before.
