Sport England: Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage Fund

Sport England’s new funding round of the Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage Fund is to launch on 29 August 2017.

The £3 million pot will be split between two separate funding pots and the prospectus to provide more detailed information on the focus of this pot will be available online from 29 August.

There will be a £2 million pot of funding to support larger projects from £25,000 up to a maximum of £500,000 for an exceptional project. This will be for people who have little take-home pay, some qualifications and are in employment. They 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.

A second £1m pot to support projects between £25,000 and £100,000 focusing on people who are far less likely to have a steady income, or any income at all, and who live less ordered lives with additional challenges.

In addition there is a small pot available of £150,000 from across the two pots to fund small awards between £1,000 and £10,000. This will support smaller scale projects.
