Opening Schools Facilities Funding:

Active Essex is proud to announce that we have been successful in our application for Opening Schools Facilities funding from Sport England.

The funding, which has been provided by the Department for Education, will help secondary schools across Greater Essex deliver extra-curricular activities and open their facilities outside of the school day during evenings, weekends and school holidays. However, large scale capital/building works aren’t eligible items for this funding. This investment comes at an important time given the impact coronavirus has had on the activity levels of children and young people and will enable secondary schools in particular to support the health and wellbeing of young people and their local communities.
