Active Spaces partnership – Fields in Trust
A new Fields in Trust protection programme will create a legacy of 50 permanently safeguarded outdoor spaces across the UK and tackle physical inactivity.
The Active Spaces programme funded by The London Marathon Charitable Trust will protect recreational land and encourage people, particularly the most inactive communities, to participate in physical activity, sport and play.
Through a partnership with Fields in Trust, the green spaces will be protected from development and each site will be awarded a grant of up to £5,000 to fund programmes that inspire the local community to get active.
One chosen site in each home nation (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) which demonstrates the most significant impact will receive a major grant of £25,000 for its activation programme.
The deadline for applications to be considered in the first round is Friday 07 July 2017.
