The aim of the Active Wellbeing Fund is to support institutions to deliver projects that improve the wellbeing of the students and staff, through specific delivery to tackle inequalities which may exist.

Projects will have a focus on strengthening the connections between physical activity and wellbeing so students and staff can feel the benefits of an active life. The projects will be designed to engage targeted audiences via a place-based approach, with a focus on specific outcomes. The project plan will need to be supported by a needs analysis and impact approach for clear outcomes associated to the delivery.

The Active Wellbeing Fund is now live for the 2023-2025 period. This funding pot is only open to English institutions due to the funding being received from Sport England. The funding will be broken down over an 18-month period, starting from January 2024.
