This two-year Fund will offer a package of cash grants and non-financial supports to up to 5 awardees to help them scale and maximise their impact in promoting healthier lives, increased levels of mental health and wellbeing and improved social cohesion.

Key Objectives of the Fund: 

  • Positive Mental Wellbeing: The primary goal of the fund is to support sports programmes that have a demonstrable impact on improving mental health outcomes. This includes reducing stress, anxiety, and depression while promoting overall psychological resilience.

  • Enhancing Social Inclusion: The fund would facilitate the development and implementation of sports programmes that actively promote social inclusion. This involves reaching marginalised populations, promoting diversity, and ensuring accessibility for individuals with varying abilities.

What do successful applicants get? 

  • A minimum 50% uplift on funding secured*

  • A place on Rethink Ireland’s Accelerator Programme

  • A tailored non-financial supports package to support them in improving their financial sustainability, including supports in the areas of financial/business modelling, market assessments and growth strategies

  • Access to Rethink Ireland’s networks

* The Rethink Ireland Board will decide how much money to award, which may be less than the amount requested. The final amount of the award will depend on how many organisations are selected.
