The Tackling Inequalities Fund (TIF) 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.
From our insight it quickly became clear that certain groups of people were being disproportionately affected by the pandemic and it was significantly impacting their ability to be physically active.
In response, TIF was created with £20 million of National Lottery funding to try and help reduce the negative impact on activity levels in these under-represented groups, with a specific focus on:
- Lower socio-economic groups
- Culturally diverse communities
- Disabled people
- People with long-term health conditions.
Since its launch, TIF has enabled community groups to continue to exist and engage with their communities, supporting people to be engaged and active.
