We’ve always tried to address inequalities through our funding and particularly encourage applications for projects that support people who have poorer health outcomes and lower activity levels.
Coronavirus (Covid-19) had an impact on everyone but our insight showed it was more significant in some communities/groups and the rate of recovery back to pre-pandemic levels is slower for some people.
To help support those most severely affected by the pandemic, we have our Active Together fund.
While our Small Grants fund has become the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund, which marks this historic year with a £5m fund dedicated to using sport and physical activity to bring bring people together and tackle inequalities..
We've also launched our Places and Spaces Fund that's part of our Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games package to help community sport and physical activity groups improve places and spaces across the country.
