The Active Richmond Fund

The Active Richmond Fund aims to support local groups and organisations to provide an extended range of activities that enriches the Social Prescribing or Cultural offer, promoting an active and healthy lifestyle for borough residents.

The fund exists to respond to both current and emerging needs, gaps and opportunities by offering social, cultural and physical activities (including sports, fitness, arts and social groups). We particularly encourage applications from groups and organisations who are working with adults who are less active, ‘hard to reach’, in care or engaged with Social Prescribing. Projects and activities involving children and young people (e.g. below the age of 18) are not eligible for funding unless they are strongly linked to intergenerational activities. The Fund awards grants for activities which improve people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Grant schemes

The Active Richmond fund offers two grant schemes to apply to:

  • Micro Grants – up to £1000
  • Main Grants – up to £5,000
