VicHealth knows how valuable sport is, to get us moving toward better health and wellbeing. Three out of five women are not getting enough physical activity to benefit their health and many people – particularly people who are less physically active – are interested in more fun, flexible and social sport activities.
This is why VicHealth’s Re-imagining Health Grants needs your help to encourage more Victorians to participate in sport through two specific focus areas:
- Increasing female participation opportunities
- Supporting social and modified sport programs for less active Victorians.
You can find out more about VicHealth’s Re-imagining Health Grants and other funding opportunities here.
