Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa

For community-based programmes and projects helping children and young people get active.

Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa provides funding for programmes or projects delivering play, active recreation and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi. These may be new or already operating.

We know from research that there are some groups who are more at risk of missing out or being less active, including girls and young women, disabled people and those living in higher deprivation communities. Programmes or projects that reach these groups will be prioritised for funding.
