The Everybody Foundation is a charity (Registered charity No. 117473) that raises funds to support individuals and groups to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
The Everybody Foundation has three aims for the benefit of the public within the communities in which Everybody Sport and Recreation operates. They are:
Promotion of a healthy & 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
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.
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.
The projects that the foundation may decide to fund are endless providing the application meets the Everybody Foundation’s aims. Examples could include:
