Sports Inclusion Fund
Over the summer, we saw significant changes to government restrictions on sport and on-campus delivery and until recently, the Students Union and Sport & Active Life were preparing for solely on campus sport delivery, with a huge redirection to recreational sport such as IMS and Let's Do Leicester for Term 1. Considering the University gym only opened last month, we have had to shift our focus to ensure the inclusion fund continues to provide sporting opportunities for students. With students back on campus, expecting support in this area, this means that delivery has changed to prioritise getting this out and available as soon as possible. We hope in future, to have this sorted to ensure we meet the aims of providing this pot to a range of students who want to get involved in sport or simply stay active but for the 2020/21 year the pot delivery and access is explained below.
The budget has been significantly reduced and to avoid removing the opportunity for students who have come to depend on it, we will only be offering the fund to students who have already received it in previous years. If this applies to you, a gym membership will add to your account week commencing Tuesday 20th October 2020, you will have a 4 week period to activate your membership through visiting the gym. If you have not activated your membership by this date the membership will be removed.
All eligible students will have received an email regarding this. Please note, to ensure we can support as many students as possible who are eligible, we will only cover Gold gym membership.
If you believe you should be eligible and have not received an email please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
