Tackling Inequalities Fund

This has been a hard year for us all. But we know the benefits of physical activity in keeping people healthy, providing opportunities and building communities.

Sport England have recently awarded Together Active funding to support our local community clubs, organisations and other groups through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Data commissioned by Sport England highlights that the pandemic is widening gaps in the activity levels across our existing priority audiences.


These groups are:

  • People from Lower Socio-economic groups
  • Ethnically diverse communities
  • People with disabilities
  • People with Long-Term Health Conditions


With this fund, we want to:

  • Provide financial support to organisations that connect to these audiences through physical activity, that may be experiencing financial hardship.
  • Enable organisations to provide opportunities for these audiences to be active at this time by adapting offers or providing new offers.


We want this fund to have an impact on the immediate challenges you may be facing COVID-19. It is about supporting local organisations in the community now so that they have a future to plan for.

We want to target those small, often unseen organisations that work at the heart of our communities and who focus on one or more of our priority groups.  You many not see yourself as a ‘sports organisation’; you may only deliver physical activity as part of a wider offer to the communities you serve. But we know that you provide a vital set of physical activity opportunities where minority groups feel comfortable.


Funding process and deadlines: 

  • Download your guidance, eligibility criteria and application form below
  • You can apply for grants of up to £5,000
  • The fund will only support those organisations that are providing physical activities for audiences from one or more of the groups listed above


The deadline is midnight, Sunday 25th October 2020
