New £5m Healthy and Active Fund to improve access to sport in Wales

A new funding initiative looks to encourage and support innovative ideas that help people build physical activity into their lives in Wales.

Grants from the first phase of the £5m Healthy and Active Fund (HAF) will be available to projects which improve physical activity levels and encourage collaboration between existing community assets, such as clubs, schools and workplaces.

HAF – a partnership between the Welsh government, Sport Wales and Public Health Wales – will also look to utilise new technology in order to lower the barriers people experience when trying to get active.

"Becoming healthy and active should not feel like an ordeal or something to be apprehensive about," said Vaughan Gething, the Welsh government's cabinet secretary for health and social services.

"It should be something that is fun, open to everyone and a way for people, families and communities to come together.

"I look forward to the first projects supported by the Fund being up and running early next year, delivering innovative solutions and making a real contribution to the health and wellbeing of people across Wales."

Details of the HAF and the application process will be announced later this year.
