Active Lincolnshire is committed to providing opportunities for everyone in Lincolnshire to be active every day. We work with partners to address inequalities and inactivity, responding to the needs of people and places.

Together, we're tackling inequalities.

About the Together Fund

The Together Fund is a continuation of the Tackling Inequalities Fund that was set up in April 2020 by Sport England in response to the coronavirus pandemic. This fund exists to help to reduce the negative impact of coronavirus and support community groups working with our target audiences to grow and enable more people be more active.

The Together Fund will see another £20 million of National Lottery funding be committed to helping the groups that are disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic and significantly impacting their ability to be physically active.

Priority Groups for the Together Fund

The funding will be spent in a similar way to the Tackling Inequalities fund and invested in four key areas across Lincolnshire.

  • Lower socio-economic groups
  • Ethnically diverse communities
  • People with a disability
  • People with long-term health conditions

Support & Guidance

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.
