Age & Opportunity Grant Scheme

We are delighted to announce that Sport Ireland and Age & Opportunity have announced funding under their Active National Grant Scheme for Sport and Physical Activity. 

The Active National Grant Scheme aims to assist in the implementation of locally-developed, well-planned initiatives designed to increase participation in recreational sport and physical activity by older people. In particular, the scheme is aimed at:

  • supporting the work of Age & Opportunity’s Active Programme including the network of PALs (Physical Activity Leaders) and the development of Go for Life Games and other initiatives;
  • assisting local clubs/organisations to enhance existing opportunities for their members in recreational sport and physical activity;
  • assisting local clubs/organisations to start new initiatives geared at involving older people in recreational sport and physical activity;
  • encouraging all sports clubs to provide new initiatives within their clubs aimed at getting older people back to their sport;
  • assisting those working in care settings (both nursing homes and day care settings) to introduce more initiatives to increase physical activity levels of those in their care.


Grants up to €1,000 can be allocated to sports clubs.



The closing date for completed application forms is 12 noon on Friday, 25th February 2022.
