Tackling Inequalities Fund
Tackling Inequalities Fund (TIF)
Created by Sport England in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Tackling Inequalities Fund aims to help under-represented groups be more active.
The fund specifically focuses on:
- Lower socio-economic groups
- Ethnically diverse communities
- Disabled people
- People with long-term health conditions
Inequalities have always been a barrier to participation in physical activity. But within the first month of Covid restrictions, it became clear the pandemic was exacerbating these barriers, significantly impacting the ability of under-represented groups to be physically active.
That’s why the Tackling Inequalities Fund reaches out to the communities that need the most support, working in collaboration with those on the ground to create accessible, inclusive opportunities and reduce health inequalities. By establishing local solutions to the barriers that exist in under-represented groups, we can create sustainable change and improve the health outcomes for our most vulnerable communities.
As part of our role as an Active Partnership, we work with local organisations and physical activity providers to help them access the TIF, with up to £10,000 of funding available for each proposal. From developing an idea and completing a proposal to designing and delivering the programme, we’ll support you through every stage of your funding journey.
How to get involved
With a simple process and hands-on support from the Active Lincolnshire team, we’re here to help you deliver programmes that unite communities and break down barriers.
