|🔗 Learn more: Fund transferred to Active Southland|
Active Southland is providing funding that makes it better and easier for Invercargill residents to participate in sport, active recreation and play.
In 2021 the Performance, Policy and Partnerships Committee determined to pass responsibility for the Council-administered Active Communities Fund to Active Southland on the basis that they are better placed to administer the fund aimed at supporting sports groups and enabling Invercargill residents to participate in physical activity.
After a review of the fund, Active Southland has now recruited a new board which will make allocation decisions and the fund has reopened.
See the Invercargill Active Communities info sheet for more information on the new priorities of the fund which includes programme delivery, support for volunteers/officials, travel/equipment/fee costs.

The Team at Active Southland are keen to hear from organisations looking to create more and better opportunities for the Invercargill community to be active.
