The Healthy & Active Fund (HAF) is a new programme managed and delivered in partnership by Sport Wales, the Welsh Government and Public Health Wales. The Fund seeks to improve people’s mental and physical health by enabling active lifestyles. Its aims are to:
- Sustainably increase the physical activity of those who are currently sedentary or have very low levels of activity.
- Improve levels of mental well-being by promoting social interactions and increasing or improving access to spaces and places for physical activity.
Applications must demonstrate how the ‘5 Ways of Working’ of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act have shaped and driven the project. Statutory and non-statutory bodies and organisations that have the structure and capacity to deliver the objectives of the Healthy & Active Fund can apply. All projects will need to involve a range of partners in their design and delivery but there must be a minimum of two organisations from different sectors and the lead body must be from the Third or Public sector.
A total of £5million of revenue funding is available over the three financial years -£2m in 2019-20,£2m in 2020-21 and £1m in 2021-22. Potential applicants should be aware that the HAF will provide grant funding for 3 financial years which will be tapered in the final year. Only projects that demonstrate they can be funded into the third year and beyond or will leave a legacy that will sustain the project activity beyond the third year will be considered.
Funding will not be awarded to:
- fund activity that generates profit for the benefit of private owners, shareholders or co-operative members;
- run grant schemes – mechanisms for distributing grant funding for project delivery should be set out clearly in your proposal and procurement used where relevant;
- any project that cannot evidence that the permissions and consents have been obtained before the project commences, where applicable;
- any Third sector lead partner who is not financially viable and legally constituted;
- support any activity that the Welsh Government or UK Government is already supporting through contracted programmes, legislation or direct delivery;
- support activity that duplicates existing provision or displaces funds.
