GetActive! Singapore

What is Active Enabler Programme?

The Active Enabler Programme is a component of GetActive! Singapore that supports ground up/community oriented proposals for creative, sport focused and lifestyle driven activities.

We encourage members of the public as well as community and corporate partners to come forward and play a part in the nation’s celebration by organising innovative activities island-wide that will encourage everyone, even those who do not exercise regularly, to develop a sporting habit. We are looking for ideas that:

  • Demonstrate the narratives of sport and how sport can help people to live better
  • Build a community that appreciates and embraces the value of sports
  • Create opportunities for the community to celebrate National Day through sport

This initiative is open to everyone, as long as you believe that you have a creative and innovative idea.

For organisations which would like to organise a sporting event but are unsure of what they would like, they can simply register their interest via the contact email and we will help them organise an event at our sports festival sites based on their requirements.

This year, in collaboration with “Our Singapore Fund”, the Active Enabler Programme will be offering more opportunities for applicants to get their ideas supported. For ideas which reaches out to more than 200 participants, is open to public and promote our Singapore Spirit and shared values, applicants will be able to get support from the fund via the Active Enabler Programme.
