Your organisation must be able to demonstrate at least one of the following:

  • Organisations whose primary purpose is to provide quality play, active recreation or sport opportunities for tamariki (children 5-11) or rangatahi (young people 12-18), particularly for those that are less active.
  • Organisations where the provision of play, active recreation or sport is an important and mandated part of their function (e.g. Primary / Intermediate schools / Kura, Secondary schools / Wharekura, Scouts etc).
  • Organisations that provide play, active recreation or sport opportunities for tamariki and rangatahi in a kaupapa Māori context.
  • Organisations that can demonstrate their relationships and impact working with our priority groups and want to co-design and deliver quality play, active recreation and sport opportunities.


There must be evidence in your application that demonstrates your purpose and experience working with tamariki and rangatahi, and the priority groups.
