WINNER of the Wednesbury Community Award for Working with Adults and Older People!
Wednesbury Sport Activators is set to help more local people get into sport thanks to £223,750 of National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Community Sport Activation Fund.
Wednesbury Celebrates a community organisation set up to maintain and improve the lives of people in the local community has received a share of £15 million of funding to support grassroots sport activity across the country.
The Wednesbury Sport Activator project was set up through Wednesbury Celebrates in response to a need for more activity in the local area to improve health and wellbeing in the borough. The funding will aim to increase the number of adults over 25 taking part in sport and physical activity over hub sites based in Wednesbury North, Wednesbury South and Friar Park.
The funding will allow Wednesbury Celebrates to develop a new programme designed to encourage adults in the area to try a new sport after feedback from the community that there was not enough provision around.
