Go For Life Grant Scheme

Local clubs, groups and organisations who promote increased participation in recreational sport and physical activity for older people are eligible to apply for the 'Go For Life Grant Scheme'

The Age & Opportunity National Grant Scheme for Older People is now open. 

Closing date for applications is 2nd October 2020 

Since 2001 Sport Ireland has provided funding to Age & Opportunity for our Active programme to help increase the participation of older people in recreational sport and physical activity. This National Grant Scheme for Sport and Physical Activity for Older People (hereafter referred to as the National Grant Scheme) is one element of the extensive Active programme which has resulted from this funding.

The National Grant Scheme aims to assist in the implementation of locally-developed, well-planned initiatives designed to increase participation in recreational sport and physical activity by older people. In particular, the scheme is aimed at:
• supporting the work of Age & Opportunity’s Active Programme including the network of PALs (Physical Activity Leaders) and the development of Go for Life Games and other initiatives;
• assisting local clubs/organisations to enhance existing opportunities for their members in recreational sport and physical activity;
• assisting local clubs/organisations to start new initiatives geared at involving older people in recreational sport and physical activity.

Grant allocations will be announced in early December 2020.
