The Together Fund is a continuation of the Tackling Inequalities Fund that was set up in April 2020 as part of Sport England and Active Partnerships support package to help the sport and physical activity sector through the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.
It will see another £20 million of National Lottery be committed to help the groups that, we can see were being disproportionately affected by the pandemic and it was significantly impacting their ability to be physically active.
TIF’s £20m was invested in four key audiences and the money from the Together Fund will be spent in the same way – these priority audiences are:
Since its launch, TIF has enabled community groups to continue to exist and engage with their communities, supporting people to be engaged and active.
TIF funding will last up until December 2022, with the new Together Fund investment running to March 2023 and intended to help further growth and recovery of community organisations working with our target audiences.
Active Cornwall has now completed its initial investment within St Austell & the clays, Bodmin and West Penwith, with further invested through Public Health the Tacking Inequalities Fund has also support Camborne, Poole, Redruth and Newquay network areas.
Please see a number of Case Studies produced by Active Cornwall to showcase the impact this funding has had on communities within Cornwall.
