Fields in Trust – Active Spaces Funding

Active Spaces is a new national programme which will create activity programmes to inspire the most inactive communities to get active and use their local outdoor spaces. The programme will secure 50 new Fields in Trust protected sites across the UK and help increase participation in many different physical activities on local parks, playing fields and green spaces which will be protected for future generations to use and enjoy.

Parks and informal green spaces have an important role to play in helping deliver this activity agenda being the settings for entry-level activity. Inactive people don’t suddenly start playing sport in a formal setting, they walk, jog, cycle or play – and they need safe local green spaces to do this.

The Active Spaces programme combines the protection in perpetuity of green spaces, together with revenue funding to engage inactive people on those spaces. After each site is protected as an Active Space it will be offered delivery of a physical activity project on-site to the value of £5,000 to serve local needs and target identified groups of inactive people.
