Coventry City Council is set to help more local people get into sport thanks to £215,000 of National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Community Sport Activation Fund.
The Council and its partners, Coventry Sports Foundation, Sky Blues in the Community and Positive Youth Foundation are among 88 projects to receive a share of £15 million of national funding to support grassroots sport activity across the country.
The #Ucan team will be running a range of sporting activities and events over the next three years, with activities planned for a variety of age groups from 14 + (including adults).
The Community Sport Activation Fund is investing a total of £47.5 million of funding over five funding rounds. Already 156 projects have shared in £27.2 million of funding over three rounds, receiving grants of between £50,000 and £250,000 to provide grassroots sport at a very local level.
Activities are due to start at the beginning of July, and information for local people can be found on www.covsport.org.uk
