Reading Level: Medium
Reading Time: 2 minutes

We are keen to reduce the inequalities experienced by Disabled people and those with long term health conditions from culturally diverse communities and encourage applications that seek to redress the imbalance.

Organisations can apply if they are a registered charity, a non-profit company or community interest company (cic), a not-for-profit community club or organisation. We are unable to accept applications from individuals, sole traders and organisations not established in the UK.

Can an organisation that is already in receipt of other Sport England funding apply for the Together Fund?

Yes, so long as the purpose for the Together Fund funding does not duplicate the purpose of the other Sport England funding.

Can the Together Fund be used to fund an activity that will be directly delivered by Local Authorities?

Generally speaking, no. However, if you wish to use the fund to fund activities delivered by local authorities, please contact us so we can discuss this on a case by case basis with Sport England.

Can Sport England fund religious groups through the Together Fund?

We welcome applications from all faith groups, particularly given the role that many can play in connecting with the priority audiences. Still, awards should not be used to promote an organisation’s religious beliefs.

Are schools eligible for TF funding?

Yes, schools can apply for the Together Fund if the activities are not being delivered during the curricular time.

Can TF projects support activities for Under 5s?

Unfortunately, we cannot support projects under 5s as the main audience. However, this can be sustained where a project includes a small number of this age group as part of a wider audience, e.g., a family engagement project.

Can TF funding support single Facility Operators to re-open their doors?

The Together Fund should not be used to help facility operators’ general operations following re-opening. TF resources can support the activity where they are best placed to provide opportunities for a priority audience to remain active. There must be a clear rationale for why the facility operator is best placed to deliver this.
