Tackling Inequalities Fund

The Tackling Inequalities Fund (TIF) was created in April 2020 by Sport England as part of their support package to help the sport and physical activity sector through the Covid-19) pandemic. From research conducted by Savanta ComRes it was clear that certain groups of people were disproportionately affected by the pandemic, so TIF was created to reach these communities and reduce inequalities. The target groups are;

  • Lower socio-economic groups
  • Culturally diverse communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with long-term health conditions.

Our Investment so Far

As of October 2021 we have invested £222,266 invested in a total of 77 projects

To ensure the funding reached those most in need, Active Humber set out to work with organisations already working with the target groups. 69% of organisations that received funding were new to Active Humber.

2. Is the need 'here and now' to support this audience

3. Has the requirement arisen as a direct result of this community group or audience being adversely affected as a result of COVID-19?

4. How will this investment help your group to survive and/or connect to one or more of the priority audiences at this time to keep them active?

5. What physical activity needs will be met because of this investment, to take place either now or in the immediate future?
