Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund’s new round of funding aims to support more organisations across Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral that help people from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
Research shows that those already experiencing the greatest inequalities have been hardest hit by the impact of Covid-19. Funding from Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund has so far enabled MSP (Merseyside Sports Partnership) to provide financial support to over 60 organisations from across the Liverpool City Region. This is to help these organisations to engage people with long-term health conditions, disabilities and those from ethnically diverse communities and lower socio-economic backgrounds in projects designed to improve their physical and mental health through physical activity.
They are now prioritising their current funding round to support organisations with funding grants of up to £5,000 to run physical activity initiatives, with projects to be completed by March 2022.
They welcome expressions of interest from charitable organisations and constituted sports clubs. Funding is able to support organisations that are experiencing financial hardship and providing opportunities for their priority audience to be active either at home, online or in the community.
Deadline for expressions of interest: 12 pm on Friday 24 September 2021.
