Sport England Tackling Inequalities Fund

We have been proud to work with Sport England and pass on funds to many of the specialist organisations in our network.

The Tackling Inequalities Fund was set up to:

  • Minimize the impact of COVID-19 on activity levels in under-represented groups, ensuring that the physical activity participation inequality gap does not widen during this period in targeted communities.
  • Enable community groups working with target audiences to continue to exist and retain the resources and capability to recover at the appropriate time.
  • Provide funding for community groups working with Sport England target audiences to remain connected with their participants and keeping them active in the COVID-19 lockdown and early recovery stages.

The impact of this work (as of Sept 21) includes:

  • 96% of funds passed on to organisations working in ethnically diverse communities
  • 18 organisations received an average award size of £5744
  • 12 of these organisations (63%) were new to Sport England.
  • £9,000 also secured to help recipients strengthen their governance, marketing and business plans.
