We’ve already awarded over 100 Active Communities Grants in Doncaster! We’re open to fresh ideas What’s important is that your idea supports Doncaster communities to be more active.

Where does the money come from? Active Communities Grants have been made possible thanks to funds allocated to City of Doncaster Council by Sport England, specifically to fund the Council’s ‘Local Delivery Pilot’ which is a project that looks to explore and create new ways to get more people physically active. The grants are managed by Get Doncaster Moving and Well Doncaster.
