Active Humber are managing a Sport England fund for eligible groups in Hull, East Riding, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. The total fund for these areas is £80,000, to be allocated before October.
The fund is called ‘Tackling Inequalities Through Sector Partners’ and is aimed at funding projects and activities that reduce the negative impact of Covid-19 and the widening of inequalities in sport and physical activity. This includes work with black, Asian and ethnic minority (BAME) groups, people with disabilities or long-term health conditions, and people in economically deprived communities.
Active Humber expect grants awarded through the scheme to be relatively small, e.g. between £50 and £10,000.
To find out more about this fund, you can watch the webinar by clicking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5bvVHz6EZw&feature=youtu.be – the webinar covers eligibility criteria, aims of the fund, what it can be spent on and how to contact the team. The webinar is 40 minutes but all the essential information about the fund is covered in the first 20 minutes.
There is no application form for this fund. Groups that are interested in applying should contact Active Humber directly to discuss their ideas. For more information, follow the link below:
