Tackling Inequalities Funding

The Tackling Inequalities Fund forms part of Sport England's £210 million support package to help the sport and physical activity sector through the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.  Based on early insight from a recent survey, it quickly become clear that certain groups of people were being disproportionately affected by the pandemic and it was significantly impacting their ability to be physically active.In response, the Tackling Inequalities Fund has been created to try and help reduce the negative impact on activity levels in these under-represented groups, with a specific focus on:

  • Lower socio-economic groups
  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with long-term health conditions.

This £20m fund of National Lottery money enables community groups working with these audiences to continue to exist and engage with their communities, with a view to keeping them active during both the lockdown and early recovery stages. WASP have helped groups in Wiltshire and Swindon apply for funding and the successful projects can be seen on the map below:
