New families project to launch in October


The Families Fund, SMILE Together, is officially launching in October for families with a disabled member living in Northumberland.

Sport England Families Fund aims to increase the opportunities for families to be active in sport and physical activity together, ensuring experiences of sport and physical activity are fun and enjoyable.

Our SMILE Together project aims to provide opportunities for families to take part in sport and physical activity together as a family unit. It will aim create positive attitudes of all family members towards sport and physical activity. Finally it will give confidence and skills to families to be able to lead their own activities in their own time.

The launch event will be held on Saturday 27th October at Ashington Leisure Centre, Lintonville, Ashington, NE63 9JY, from 1pm – 3pm. The event is an invitation for families to attend, take part in a range of sport and activities and to find out more about the project.
