Sport England new Tackling Inactivity Funding 17 August 2017 Sport England has announced that it will launch the second phase of its £3 million fund to tackle inactivity and economic disadvantage on 29 August when it will open to expressions of interest from across England. The £3 million Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage Fund is intended to get more people, especially those from lower socio-economic groups, engaged with physical activity. The Fund will provide grants to support projects that use sport and physical activity to support positive social change for communities and individuals in lower socio-economic groups. The £3 million fund will be divided as follows: Level One with a total of £2 million will provide grants of between £25,000 and £500,000 to support activities which benefit those who have little take-home pay, some qualifications and are in employment. Beneficiaries will typically live very ordered lives but find it hard to build physical activity into their lives, or they feel being active is just not for them. Level Two with a total of £1 million will provide grants of between £25,000 and £100,000 to support activities which benefit those who are far less likely to have a steady income, or any income at all, and who live less ordered lives with additional challenges. Level Three with a total of £150,000, which comes from across the two other pots, will provide small grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 to support smaller scale activities which benefit both types of beneficiaries. Expressions of interest will be accepted from a wide range of organisations including non-sports organisations that have not worked previously with Sport England. Full details, including the online prospectus and dates of the mid-September to mid-October workshops for applicants, will be available from 29 August 2017. Expressions of interest will be accepted from 29 August 2017 until 30 October 2017. Interested? Further information is available from the Sport England website. . This content is © Bfunded 2017.
