Community Games

Home > Programmes & services > Community Games

Be inspired by this summer’s Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympics and bring your community together this year with a festival of sporting and cultural activities. Awards of up to £800 are available.

We want to help communities across West Yorkshire organise their own  celebratory Community Games events in 2016 and beyond. We have awards to support your idea for new events or improving regular ones where everyone has the opportunity to get active.

We also have an award this summer for Community Games events to deliver weekly sport sessions related to their Community Games events to bring the local community together, especially family activities.
