The Together Fund

Since July 2020, we have been a national delivery partner for Sport England’s Together Fund. This was set up to tackle the widening inequalities in participation rates in sport and physical activity amongst underrepresented communities caused by Covid-19.

We are keen to ensure that everyone can get active in a way that suits them. And we know how barriers to participation intersect with impairment, religion, race, gender identity, and class. We understand how important local and grassroots organisations are in redressing the imbalance.

We distribute funds to Disabled People’s User Led Organisations (DPULOs) and small community-based organisations. This will enable them to run projects supporting Disabled people and people with long term health conditions to become more active in a way that is right for them. We have funded over 80 projects supporting more than 3,000 people, and we will continue to deliver the fund until March 2023.

We know that these are often run by the goodwill and dedication of local volunteers and the passion of committed community leaders. We want to support them with the Together Fund.
