Participating in sport and recreation is a part of a healthy lifestyle. Having fun through recreation can help kids make new friends, develop leadership skills, deal with stress, increase their physical activity levels and improve their overall health.

When families face financial difficulties, registration fees for recreation are often the first to be cut from their budgets.

Norfolk County Recreation has partnered with organizations that can assist families experiencing financial shortfalls. Funds are available for children ages 4 to 18 years.

  • Funding available for incomes lower than $40,000
  • An application form must be filled out for each child
  • Please allow 3 weeks for approvals
  • All applications need supporting documentation before funding can be approved
