Active Growth Grants 

The ‘Active Growth’ fund will provide £165,000 to the Withernsea community, supporting 5 established organisations, groups or facilities in Withernsea to become ‘Active Growth’ projects.

Active Withernsea launched a new grant scheme in 2023 to support established community organisations that provide physical activity in Withernsea to expand, develop and grow.  

Successful organisations are provided with the opportunity to work with a specialist consultant for guidance on future developments and/or business planning and substantial funding to bring their ideas to life.  

The focus for ‘Active Growth’ is to enable local organisations to drive forward their ideas to expand and provide more physical activity in the community whether that be through facility development, increasing membership opportunities, attracting new audiences, or delivering additional activities.

Kristina Richardson, Active Withernsea Pilot Manager, explained: “This is a fantastic opportunity for local organisations to develop their aspirations and reach their full potential, maximising support for Withernsea residents to be more active. We hope the funding will be game changing, championing physical activity and supporting the economic growth and resilience of the town.”

Successful applicants will receive support of up to £5k for consultancy fees for a feasibility study and once complete, the group or organisation will have the opportunity to apply for a minimum of £27k in further grant funding to implement their idea for development and growth.

A new round of Expression of Interest (EOI) applications is scheduled to commence in early 2024. There will be a new intake for applications starting in January 2024.
