Calling all groups in Hull that support people to be active!
Sport England have identified from their physical activity attitudes and behaviours survey during COVID-19 the widening gaps in the activity levels across the key priority audiences. This clearly shows that some of the target audiences are suffering more from the impact of the disease than is the case with the wider population. These groups are people from Lower Socio-Economic Groups, Black, Asian Minority Ethnic Communities, Disabled People and People with Long-Term Health Conditions.
Sport England want to deepen and further widen the reach of their funding to the under-represented audiences listed above. Sport England are doing that through the introduction of a funding programme called the ‘Tackling inequalities through awards to sector partners’ to help reduce the negative impact of Covid-19 and tackle the widening of the inequalities in sport and physical activity.
Active Humber has received £80,000 from Sport England Tackling Inequalities fund to distribute between June and October 2020. (nb. The grant application process is planned to be minimal / funding will range from £50 to max £10,000)
