Did you know Glasgow is the European Capital of Sport 2023? Lots of information can be found at https://www.glasgowlife.org.uk/sport/european-capital-of-sport-2023, but Glasgow Life has informed us that there is now the opportunity for funding through the European Capital of Sport Fund. The fund aims to support communities across Glasgow to celebrate sport and increase the opportunities for people to enjoy the benefits of taking part in sport and physical activity, regardless of background or ability.

The fund has 2 elements to support community organisations:

• The Celebrate element will support communities to come together to find out more about opportunities to take part in sports and physical activity in their local area through community events and campaigns.

• The Innovate element will support organisations to create exciting programmes and activities for new audiences in their local communities, breaking down the barriers to participation in sport and physical activity, particularly for groups who are underrepresented.
