Tackling Inequalities Funding

Tackling Inequalities – Sport England funding

Through our involvement with disseminating National Lottery Funding from Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities fund, Active Lincolnshire have been supporting groups of people across Lincolnshire whose levels of activity have been most negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The projects that have already received funding are having significant impact on the people involved, and we are pleased to be able to continue to further support community and voluntary organisations to get people moving more through continued investment.

We are looking to work with charities, voluntary groups and sports clubs to support them to address and reduce the negative impact of Covid-19 on people’s activity levels following lockdown. Sport England data highlighted that there are widening gaps in activity levels across existing priority groups. We are interested in hearing from organisations and groups who are engaging with the following groups:

  • People from Lower Socio-Economic Groups (LSEG)
  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME)
  • Disabled People
  • People with long term health conditions

The funding can support groups and organisations to continue their work with target groups, or provide new activities that encourage physical activity in those people whose activity levels have been most impacted. Projects that have already received funding include, a walking challenge for carers, online seated dance classes, outdoor exercise classes and specific fitness sessions for people with health conditions. We are looking for creative and innovative solutions to reach the people of Lincolnshire most in need at this time.

The short video presentation below explains more about the project, the criteria and who we can work with.
