Activate was a Sport England-funded project, designed to encourage LGBT people in the area to try new sports, and challenge homophobia in sport, after feedback that there was not enough provision for the community.
July 2018 saw the official conclusion of the Sport England funding for the Activate programme at Birmingham LGBT. We’ve been privileged to have four years support in total, after the initial three-year grant was extended to bring our community an extra year of sport and fitness activities in the light of the many positive benefits this was showing.
A reduced programme of activities will continue weekly at the Birmingham LGBT Centre and you can walk, run, swim, climb, or play football, rugby, badminton and water polo with Birmingham’s fantastic LGBT and inclusive sport groups. You can find out more here
