Tackling inequalities

Active Lincolnshire champion equality in Lincolnshire. Discover more about our work, what we do in tackling inequalities in physical activity and sport, and the research, insights and funding opportunities available to your sports club, school or organisation here.

Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund was created in response to the inequalities faced by certain groups during Covid, limiting their ability to be physically active. The programme is designed to help the sport and activity sector provide options for these groups to engage with physical activity, with Active Lincolnshire distributing funding across the county to enable community, voluntary and other organisations to support their clients with options to be active.

Since the programme began in May 2020, Active Lincolnshire has awarded funding to over 40 projects, including programmes specifically designed to support communities. These projects include:

  • Transported – Three programmes that integrated physical activity as part of a cultural experience. One of these programmes was called Street Games, using the streets of Spalding in Lincolnshire as a board game to collect items and complete challenges that involved being active
  • Green Synergy delivered yoga sessions in a community garden setting, enabling people to get out of their homes, engage in physical activity and integrate socially into their community
  • Gainsborough Trinity Foundation delivered the Access Roses project, providing a community hub at the Roses Sports Ground. Over 150 people accessed the programmes, which included yoga, walking sport sessions and play sessions for children
