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.

Together, we're tackling inequalities.

Inequalities have always been a barrier to participation in physical activity. But within the first month of the coronavirus pandemic, it became clear the restrictions were exacerbating these barriers, significantly impacting the ability of under-represented groups to be physically active.

In May 2022, Sport England developed the Tackling Inequalities Fund as a response to these inequalities faced - a programme designed to help the sport and physical activity sector provide options to these groups, engaging them with physical activity.

As part of Active Lincolnshire's role as an Active Partnership, our team were able to support and award funding to 58 projects across Lincolnshire during the first rounds of the Tackling Inequalities Together Funding, and our work continues into 2022 with the new Together Fund.

Together Fund

Continuing on from the Tackling Inequalities Fund, the Together Fund will see another £20 million of National Lottery funding be committed to helping break down the barriers to accessing sport and physical activity and support those who have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The programme funds projects that work with people within the community that often face barriers when it comes to accessing physical activity, focusing on:

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