Up to £30,000 is available to spend on projects that help get people active in Whitchurch.
This is a one-off Public Health funded initiative to help address physical inactivity in Whitchurch. The town has been allocated up to £30,000 to fund projects aimed at getting more people to be more active, regardless of age.
The funding is available to people who have ideas on getting people more physically active, especially those people who do not do any physical activity at the moment. Research has shown that being more active could save your life.
If you’ve got an idea for a project that would encourage more people in Whitchurch to be more active, then let us know. Please complete the Expression of Interest form and submit by the closing date of Saturday 14th May:
Why? Physical inactivity can cause serious health problems. In fact, it is now one of the country’s main health concerns, being responsible for one in six deaths and costing the country an estimated £7.4 billion a year. But just by being more active you can improve your health and even prevent long term, debilitating conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, dementia and strokes.
That is why we want to encourage everyone to be more active and we especially want to target those people who don’t usually get involved. So if you’ve got an idea to get more people active then tell us. You could receive funding if your idea is chosen.
