The Tackling Inequalities Fund

Overview of the 3 funding phases

The Tackling Inequalities Fund (TIF) was part of the emergency response package delivered by Sport England during COVID-19. 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. A key aim of this fund was to invest in partners who had direct access to the priority audiences for this fund.

These audiences are:

  • People with Long Term Health Conditions
  • Disabled People
  • People on Low Incomes
  • Culturally Diverse Communities

Across the 3 phases we partnered with 103 organisations. 83% of these organisations had never received Sport England funding before.
