Learn more about the impacts of these funded projects to help more young women get and stay active.

The Young Women’s Activation fund delivered $2m of funding towards nine projects supporting participation and leadership initiatives for young women to be physically active. The investment was one of our original 24 commitments supporting the participation outcome of the Women and Girls in Sport and Active Recreation Strategy. 

The fund enabled organisations to fast-track their women and girls’ initiatives, expand their offerings, test new approaches, and gather useful insights that helped them to better meet the needs of young women and embed initiatives as key strategic priorities.

Below you can read case studies on each of the nine projects supported by this funding and a report highlighting the challenges, impacts, and lessons learned along the way.

This fund is now closed.
