Through VicHealth's Active Participation Grants, community based organisations are funded for one to two years to work in partnership with a diverse range of organisations within their community to develop opportunities for people who would not normally participate in traditional sport or active recreation. This booklet showcases some of the inspiring projects funded by this program, from young refugees playing in a local basketball league through to older people going on organised walks in their local area. The stories show what individuals and organisations are doing to improve health and connect communities.
