What are the Everybody Foundation’s aims?

The Everybody Foundation’s has three aims for the benefit of the public within the communities in which Everybody Sport and Recreation operates. They are:

  1. Promotion of a healthy and active lifestyle

Organisations can be funded to deliver projects that encourage people to be active and healthy. It could be a one-off community event, to kick-start an activity programme or something completely different.

  1. Assisting individuals to achieve their potential

Individuals can be supported to be active regardless of whether that is trying to win an Olympic gold medal, develop the skills to help others to be active or to access their session of choice more regularly.

  1. Improvement to facilities used to fulfil an active lifestyle

Funding can be used to pay for facility developments and the purchase of non-sporting equipment that helps the communities in which Everybody Sport and Recreation operates to be more active.

What can the Everybody Foundation support?

The projects that the foundation may decide to fund are endless providing the application meets the Everybody Foundation’s aims. Examples could include:

  • Organising a family fun day in a local park.
  • Helping a sports club to develop a new session for a hard to reach group.
  • Supporting a young athlete to access specialist training facilities.
  • Operating a subsidised walking football group.
  • Offering a free sports hall to a charity fundraising activity.
  • Assisting the purchase of a table tennis table for a community centre.
