Sports Funding - Tackling Inequalities
Active Suffolk has secured £50,000 from Sport England to help reduce the negative impact of COVID-19 and widening of the inequalities in sport and physical activity.
The money is for community organisations that deliver sport and physical activity to four priority audiences:
- People on Low Incomes – in Suffolk we are prioritising the areas with the greatest economic and social need. We expect most of the organisations we fund for this priority audience to be serving communities in the highest areas of deprivation, but we will be flexible in our approach to take into account the current situation of different communities.
- Disabled people or those with long term health conditions – organisations that work directly with these two audiences.
- BAME – organisations that work directly with Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities
