Sports England – Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage

Deadline 5pm on 6th November 2017

Tackling inactivity is a big challenge in England – that’s why it’s at the heart of the strategy Towards an Active Nation.

The second phase of there tackling inactivity funding will invest £3 million to support inactive people from lower socio-economic groups, and they’re looking for partners who can reach them and help change their lives for the better.

They’re seeking to reach two different lower socio-economic groups:

  • £2 million will support larger projects from £25,000 up to a maximum of £500,000. This will be to fund projects aimed at inactive people who are in employment. They will be ordinary people and families who sometimes, or often, struggle to make ends meet. They can find it hard to build physical activity into their lives, or feel being active isn’t for them.
  • £1 million will support projects between £25,000 and £100,000. This will focus on projects aimed at inactive people who are far less likely to have a steady income, or any income at all, and face more extreme disadvantage. They may also be facing other challenges, such as being at risk of offending or dealing with substance misuse.
