More Kids, More Opportunities, More Skills
KiwiSport is a government funding initiative administered by Sport Wellington to increase participation in sport for school-aged children.
The Wellington KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund Plan 2012-15 outlines how KiwiSport funding will be allocated and distributed across the greater Wellington region (Wellington, Porirua, Hutt Valley, Kapiti Coast and Wairarapa). Sport Wellington is responsible for the distribution of $2.2 million over three years.
KiwiSport aims to:
- Increase the number of school-aged children participating in organised sport
- Increase the availability and accessibility of sport opportunities for all school-aged children
- Support children in developing skills that will enable them to participate effectively in sport
Sport Wellington, in partnership with local councils, will be hosting forums to seek community input on the draft 2015-18 Wellington KiwiSport Regional Partnership Fund (RPF) Plan.
For information on other forums happening around the region, including Kapiti, Wairarapa, Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt, and Porirua click here.
Please note that the Lower Hutt KiwiSport Forum has been postponed to the Thursday 16 April. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
