Tackling Economic Disadvantage

Sport England has launched its ‘Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage Fund’ for sport or physical activity projects working with two lower socio-economic groups: inactive people who are in employment and inactive people who are far less likely to have a steady income, or any income at all.

Three grant structures operate ranging from £1000 up to £500,000. Applicants do not need to be sport groups or have previously offered sport activities but they must have strong relationships and a track record of working with disadvantaged and inactive individuals.

The deadline for applications is 6th November. Find out more here
