Government extends Change4Life sports club funding

The Youth Sport Trust will provide Change4Life sports services for a further year.


The Youth Sport Trust has been awarded £658,708 to continue providing Change4Life sports services to children for a further year.

This funding will be used to provide:

  • new online resources
  • renewed focus on children in low-income families
  • closer alignment with the government’s childhood obesity plan

Last year, the project supported more than 7000 Change4Life sports clubs and over 74,000 children.

The Youth Sport Trust has been delivering this project since 2011. So far it has helped lift primary aged children across the country out of inactivity and improved lifestyle choices and quality of life over the longer term.
