Active Spaces is a new UK-wide programme to secure recreational spaces in perpetuity and support community activation. Funded by The London Marathon Charitable Trust and delivered in partnership by Fields in Trust its aim is to inspire the most inactive communities to get active and use their local outdoor spaces.
The programme will secure 50 new Fields in Trust protected sites across the UK and help increase participation in many different physical activities on local parks, playing fields and green spaces which will be protected for future generations to use and enjoy.
Parks and informal green spaces have an important role to play in helping deliver this activity agenda being the settings for entry-level activity. Inactive people don’t suddenly start playing sport in a formal setting, they walk, jog, cycle or play – and they need safe local green spaces to do this. Funding is available up to £5000.
