Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa provides funding for projects delivering play, active recreation and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi within areas of high deprivation, girls and young women and those living with disabilities.
Applications MUST show evidence of engagement with your target participants through either survey results (collated), images of a whiteboard brainstorm or feedback session, videos of young people talking etc. The key thing is to show us that you’ve consulted with young people and your activity is what they want or need.
We strongly recommend completing your application on a word document prior to transferring to the application form.
