What is the fund for?

The Move More Cranbrook Community Grants Fund is part of Live and Move, the Exeter and Cranbrook Sport England Local Delivery Pilot.

The fund is designed specifically for Cranbrook, a new and unique town with a vibrant community. The Fund exists to support the following three priority aims:

  • Getting people active
  • Improving health and wellbeing
  • Supporting people working together to address local needs


These aims help us to provide support for projects that may not have access to funding elsewhere and to make sure that Sport England funds are spent for their intended purpose.

As a relatively new town with a lot of young people and families in the community, Cranbrook presents opportunities and challenges. There is great opportunity for new initiatives and projects that contribute to more active lifestyles. New groups in the community are often at early stages and require support to develop their ideas. Cranbrook has a pioneering spirit and a strong sense of community and belonging, which are incredible assets when it comes to community projects.

Grants can support groups and organisations connected to Cranbrook with a one-off grant of up to £3,000, for up to 80% of the total project costs. Volunteer hours can count towards the project’s contribution to the cost. Please see our Tips for a successful application for more information. It supports projects that offer opportunities for Cranbrook residents and build on the strengths of people and organisations. The funding is to help you run events, festivals or projects that encourage community participation and focus on the above priority aims. The applications will be reviewed by a panel including representatives for Sport England, Live and Move and Cranbrook town.
