Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa

Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa provides funding for programmes or projects delivering play, active recreation, and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi. These may be new or already operating.

Nuku Ora is proud to be managing the Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa Fund on behalf of Sport NZ for the wider Wellington region, with a total of $1,423,435.00 to distribute over the next 12 months.

We know from research that there are some groups who are more at risk of missing out or being less active, including children and young people in higher deprivation communities, girls and young women (5-24), and disabled children and young people (5-18). Programmes or projects that reach these groups will be prioritised for funding.

You will find all of the relevant Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa Fund information below. After reviewing the information, if you have any questions, please contact us at tumanawa@nukuora.org.nz. We highly recommend you get in touch before submitting an application so that we can help to ensure that your application is aligned. To ensure you don't miss out on the most up-to-date information about this fund in our region, sign up now to our new Tū Manawa Active Aotearoa-specific mailing list.
