The Irish Sports Council and Age & Opportunity are delighted run the Go for Life National Grant Scheme for Sport and Physical Activity for Older People. Since 2001 over three thousand grants totalling €1.93 million have been distributed to local clubs and organisations and this money has been used by older people to purchase equipment and to take part in activity programmes.
Grants range from €500 – €3,000 and are typically used by groups to purchase equipment or so that members may explore a new sporting activity. Successful applicants include active retirement associations, senior citizens clubs, ICA guilds, sports clubs, day centres and community centres in the 26 counties.
Application Forms are available from Go for Life c/o Age & Opportunity Marino Institute of Education, Griffith Avenue, Dublin 9. Tel: 01 805 7733 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
