The fund supports small and community focused projects that benefit Sutton residents and encourage groups and communities to be more physically active.

The panel are particularly interested in providing funding to cover set-up costs for projects which will be sustainable and self-sufficient long term. They will not provide ongoing funding for any projects - the project must show how it will be self-sustainable in the longer term.

Priority areas include encouraging the following groups to be more physically active:

Those from more economically deprived areas of the borough such as;

  • South Beddington and Roundshaw
  • St Helier East
  • St Helier West
  • Belmont
  • Sutton Central 
  • Those from B.A.M.E communities
  • Those with disabilities
  • Those with long-term health conditions
  • Women and girls
