Sport England’s Together Fund

Sport England’s Together Fund

This current round of Together Fund is now closed for applications.

Wesport have been administering Phases 1-3 of the Tackling Inequalities Fund since April 2020. As we progress on from Phase 3, the fund will be changing to Sport England’s Together Fund. The Together Fund will utilise investment to help reduce the negative impact of the coronavirus and the widening inequalities within sport and physical activity.

Insight has shown that certain groups were disproportionately affected by the pandemic and impacted their ability to be physically active. Therefore, the Together Fund will focus on four priority groups:

  • Culturally diverse communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with long-term health conditions
  • People on low incomes

Please watch the video below to offer you some information about the journey we have been on, up to this point, and how the new Together Fund will work.

We encourage applicants to only apply for what they need so that this funding can go as far as possible across the West of England. Through previous rounds of funding, we have seen the average application be around £5000.

As mentioned in the video above, Wesport are collaborating with Voscur to implement the Together Fund in the West of England.

When applying, to ensure that your organisation is set up correctly please visit Voscur’s website to check your organisation has the correct processes and practices in place.

To start the process of your Together Fund application, refer to the application form or contact Ruth and Caleb. Alternatively, you can also reach out to your local VCFSE organisation:

Monitoring & Evaluation

If successful through the Together Fund application process, you will be expected to complete Monitoring & Evaluation requirements. This will consist of:

Wesport were able to host some drop in calls to allow an opportunity for partners to ask any questions or gain some clarification on the Monitoring & Evaluation requirements. The dates for these have now passed so if you have any questions, please contact Ruth or Caleb and a discussion can be held on an indiviudal basis.

Thank you for looking into the Together Fund. We are looking forward to your application and supporting you with any queries.
