Sport Auckland is proud to be partnering with Aktive to manage the Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa Fund on behalf of Sport NZ in central Auckland and the Howick/Pakuranga (East/South East) communities.
WHAT IS THE TŪ MANAWA ACTIVE AOTEAROA FUND?
Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa provides funding for projects or programmes to deliver play, active recreation and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi. These may be new or already operating.
Projects or programmes engaging tamariki and rangatahi who are inactive and face major barriers will be prioritised for funding.
WHO IS THE FUNDING FOR?
The purpose of Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa is to provide quality experiences that are accessible, create a lifelong love of being active and meet the needs of tamariki and rangatahi. We welcome applications from a wide range of organisations that provide play, active recreation and sport opportunities, particularly for:
Our research during COVID-19 shows there are some groups who are more at risk of missing out or being less active, so making sure they can access this funding is a priority.

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR LOCAL FUND APPLICATIONS
If you would like to find out if your project idea is suitable for Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa, we invite you to complete an expression of interest. This requires you to answer a couple of quick questions and summarise what your project/activity is about, who will be involved and how much you are seeking from the Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa fund.
We will provide feedback on what you have submitted and an indication of further work that may be required before a full application should be forwarded for consideration. Please be aware that support for your application or an acknowledgement that your application is ready to progress, is no guarantee that your application will be approved.
IMPLEMENTATION IN A SCHOOL/KURA SETTING
Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa is a fund provided by Sport NZ for community organisations, including schools and kura, to deliver physical activity opportunities for tamariki and rangatahi.
In schools and kura, these opportunities or projects might occur:
1. Outside of class time (breaks or before and after school)
2. In class time, where only the school personnel are involved
3. In class time where external providers or organisations may also be involved
Applications for projects in the first two examples, just need to complete the application form in the same way it is completed in any other setting. Where the project occurs during class time, and involves external people, providers or organisations, there is an additional step in the application process. The reason for this is to ensure that Tū Manawa funding is not used to replace the role of the teacher or kaiako and/or curriculum teaching and learning, but instead, to enhance and support the learning aims which are identified by the school/kura.
EVIDENCE OF NEED
Applicants need to provide evidence, including ‘participant voice’, demonstrating that the tamariki and rangatahi who are missing out are genuinely interested in doing the proposed project or programme. This means applicants should engage tamariki and rangatahi on what activities they want to participate in, what the barriers are and include this information in the application. This provides evidence of need for your project.
You are welcome to apply now if you are confident that your activity or project meets the requirements of the fund and the expectations of the organisation that is administering it.
