Get Moving with The Duke of Ed
The Embracing 2018 Legacy Program is partnering with The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award – Australia to ensure the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) leaves a legacy of a healthier, more active future for Australia’s youth through the Get Moving with The Duke of Ed initiative.
The project creates opportunities for young people to participate regularly in sport and other physical activities for the improvement of health and fitness and the creation of healthy habits.
The Get Moving with The Duke of Ed project also encourages young people to do the Award and to get involved in a sport or other physical activity that they may not have had the opportunity to do so otherwise access.
Individual grants of up to $400 (plus GST) have been made available to support 126 young people across Australia aged between 14-24 years of age to undertake the Award with a focus on the Physical Recreation section.
Eligibility criteria and more information are available online at The Duke of Edinburgh's Australia website.
