Satellite Funding 

Satellite clubs provide young people aged 14-19 with opportunities that they may not otherwise have to get actively involved in, and more engaged with, sport. They’re designed around their needs and motivations, making it easy for them to develop regular activity habits that they enjoy.  They should be targeted at helping these young people to become active or to build regular activity habits, and/or at under-represented groups in sport. For Greater Manchester, we know that these groups are:

  • Black and Minority Ethnicities
  • Disadvantaged Communities (low socio-economic status)
  • LGBT Community
  • Those with Mental Health Conditions
  • College/Sixth Form transition students
  • Women and Girls
  • Disability Groups (both physical and mental)

The satellite clubs guidance document and application forms can be found on the link to the right of this page.
