You can apply for funding if your project does at least one of these things:
When the fund assesses sports, the arts and heritage projects, they are particularly interested in projects where the main mission is to strengthen your community in some way.
With the example of funding an outdoor gym, this goes above and beyond simply providing a fitness facility. It also looks at how offering a ‘free’ exercise provision helps to tackle the cost-of-living crisis, or how creating a central exercise hub brings communities together, thus reducing social isolation. Or how offering teenagers a place to gather and keep fit actively reduces anti-social behaviour.
If you are a local charity or volunteer group looking to fund the installation of outdoor gym equipment, your local authority or Council for Voluntary Services (CVS) may be able to offer you support and advice on writing your application. Equally at Fresh Air Fitness, we have a team of experts who can support your project with the funding process. Often, we can help you to achieve part funding or even full funding of your outdoor gym. Any funding you receive goes in full into your outdoor gym project. You can reach our friendly and professional, Fresh Air Fitness team on 01483 608 860.
