Supporting those who are least active

We work hard to support those who are least active in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. But we can’t do it alone. If you’re seeking funding for a project to support people who aren’t very active then please chat to us about your plans. We’re particularly keen to help anyone who is working with women or people with long-term health conditions.

We can often provide data and insight to support applications. And, we might even be able to join forces to make exciting projects happen.
