Find out more about the Together Fund and apply today for your community project in Lincolnshire.
Together, we're tackling inequalities.
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.
The funding will be spent in a similar way to the Tackling Inequalities fund and invested in four key areas across Lincolnshire.
