Physical health and wellbeing underpin the ability to participate fully in personal, social, and academic development. Healthy living and sports are a crucial part of a student’s growth and development in terms of their mental health and physical fitness. Through participation in sports and games a young person can gain various new skills, confidence, and friends.
Grant programme examples: Cooking competitions, health eating advice, fitness programmes, sport competitions, sports kit and sports leadership programmes
Note: We have on rare occasions contributed some limited funding for sports facilities where a grantee was able to use OT funding (<£50k) to leverage in at least 9-10 times more funding from another funder.
