Healthy and Active Fund details have now been announced
Following the announcement of the Healthy and Active Fund in September, full details of the fund and how to apply have now been published.
The Healthy and Active Fund (HAF) is a new programme managed and delivered in partnership by Sport Wales, the Welsh Government and Public Health Wales. The Fund seeks to improve people’s mental and physical health by enabling active lifestyles. Its aims are to:
- Sustainably increase the physical activity of those who are currently sedentary or have very low levels of activity.
- Improve levels of mental wellbeing by promoting social interactions and increasing or improving access to spaces and places for physical activity.
Applications must demonstrate how the ‘5 Ways of Working’ of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act have shaped and driven the project. Statutory and non-statutory bodies and organisations that have the structure and capacity to deliver the objectives of the Healthy and Active Fund can apply. All projects will need to involve a range of partners in their design and delivery but there must be a minimum of two organisations from different sectors and the lead body must be from the Third or Public sector.
