The Together Fund was a continuation of the Tackling Inequalities Fund that was set up in April 2020 as part of our support package to help the sport and physical activity sector through the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.
It saw another £20 million of National Lottery funding committed to help the groups that, from our insight, we could see were being disproportionately affected by the pandemic and it was significantly impacting their ability to be physically active.
TIF's £20m was invested in four key audiences and the money from the Together Fund was spent in the same way - these priority audiences were:
- Lower socio-economic groups
- Culturally diverse communities
- Disabled people
- People with long-term health conditions.
TIF enabled community groups to continue to exist and engage with their communities, supporting people to be engaged and active.
