Women in Sport Activity Programme: Closed

“The ‘Women in Sport Initiative’ was developed to raise overall physical activity levels among women and to support women’s roles within sports organisations. KRSP are inviting proposals from organisations on initiatives that can act as showcases or successful demonstration projects that can be replicated by other clubs/organisations in the future and have the potential to develop into longer-term programme. KRSP are particularly interested in supporting the development of initiatives in designated disadvantaged areas of for minority populations or groups with special needs. Proposals will be considered under health enhancing physical activity, return to or re-engagement in sports, fitness programmes or training for leaders/staff/coaches.
