About us

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

Together Fund Requirements

Active Lincolnshire are looking to support projects, with applications between £500 - £5,000, that meet all of the following requirements:

  • Have at least 51% of participants coming from one of the four priority groups as detailed above
  • Funding is required as a direct result of your community group or audience being adversely affected by the results of COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic
  • The funding will help to resolve issues in improving access to take part in sport and physical activity for your target audience
  • This investment will help your community group to recover and grow or continue to survive as a result of hardship
  • Your proposal is directly funding the provision and delivery of physical activity that is currently taking place or will take place in the immediate future
  • You are a trusted community organisation
  • Your project will be sustainable post-funding.
