Funding activities for children and young people

Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa provides funding for the delivery of activities for children and young people. Activities can be new or existing, and your application needs to show how you’re meeting the needs of young people.

This fund has a particular focus on groups who are less active, including girls and young women, disabled people and those living in higher deprivation communities.

Find out more below and go to your Regional Sports Trust website to apply.

What can be funded?

This is an activation fund that is intended to help cover the costs that are directly associated with the delivery of your activity. These costs might also address any barriers that prevent participants accessing your activity.  They could include:

  • Venue or equipment hire
  • Costs of transport to the event
  • Support for volunteers or activity delivery staff
  • Equipment (only where this is required as part of a project or activity)
  • Officials, where these are required for the delivery of the opportunity
  • Costs associated with developing and promoting your activity.

We are interested in receiving applications that take innovative approaches to engaging our priority groups in quality play, active recreation and sport experiences that meet their needs.
