The funding ranges from £1,000 to £10,000 and is to provide opportunities for young people to bring communities together, to help promote understanding and to solve problems through sport and recreational activities.
The UK wide funding programme is for 11-21 year olds, who are prepared to go the extra mile and use their passion for sport to bring respect and understanding to their communities by setting up their own projects.
The funding can only be applied for by young people. Clubs cannot apply.
It is essential that the project will address the issue of bringing communities together, so it cannot be used only for existing club activities.
