Latest CSN Articles




From this point on, the Community Sport Network team will no longer be sending out articles.

It was established in August 2013 as a free to access news-line on all things happening in Community Sport. It was set up as a small contribution to the legacy of London 2012 which inspired us all and will live long in our memories.

Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Thanks for being a part of it!

Sport England £5m fund to tackle inactivity
 
Groups with projects designed to get inactive people more physically active through sport can now bid for a share of a new £5 million National Lottery fund. Sport England, which invests public money in grassroots sport projects, has made the money available through its Get Healthy, Get Active fund.
 
Get Healthy, Get Active is focused on those who are inactive. The fund aims to:
  • get more inactive people playing sport once a week for at least 30 minutes
  • achieve a better understanding of sport’s contribution to improving public health and the prevention, treatment and management of long term conditions
  • enable sport and physical activity to be regularly commissioned to meet a wider range of agendas but particularly focusing on reducing health and social care costs
  • achieve a reduction in health inequalities.
 
An online application portal for submitting a project for Get Healthy Get Active funding will be available from mid/late-November 2014. Further information on how to apply can be found by reading the funding prospectus.
 
A Sport England satellite workshop exploring what has been learnt from previous funding (formerly called Get Healthy, Get into Sport) and how you can get involved will take place on Thursday 20th November after the BHFNC annual conference. This session will explore some of the challenges and previous learnings, as well as setting out the criteria and funding available for round two.
 
This year’s BHFNC annual conference, Creative partnerships – Promoting physical activity by stealth, will take place at the Heritage Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire. The Sport England workshop is only available to delegates attending the conference.
 
This latest round of funding comes as Public Health England publishes Everybody Active, Every Day, a framework for national and local action to address the physical inactivity across the country, responsible for 1 in 6 deaths and costing the country an estimated £7.4 billion a year.
