London Community Foundation – Active Communities
The Active Communities grants scheme is provided by Sport England in partnership with the London Community Foundation to increase participation in sport and activity across communities in London and to get more inactive people active.

The funding is also to support groups that harness sport and physical activity as a way to connect with their communities; to engage and inspire those facing disadvantage, to reconnect people with society and to provide hope of turning lives around.

In addition to getting inactive people active, priority will be given to projects that address any of the following Programme Goals:

Reduce isolation.
Encourage greater social cohesion.
Contribute towards crime prevention.
Provide physical activities for lower income families.
The first round of funding has been restricted to the five following priority boroughs in London:

Barking and Dagenham
Brent
Greenwich
Lewisham
Newham
