See the Positive Impact Tackling Inequalities Fund Has Made to Devon Organisations

Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund (now called the Together Fund) was created as a response to the disproportionate impact some groups saw as a result of the pandemic. While activity levels were impacted across the board, those from four priority groups were more likely to be less active as a result. The priority groups are:

  • People from lower socio-economic groups (LSEG)
  • People from culturally diverse communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with long-term health conditions (LTCs)

Active Devon has been working locally to support organisations helping to get or keep these priority groups active.

We have pulled together eight great examples of organisations that have benefitted from the Tackling Inequalities Fund. And we are really excited to share them with you through these incredible impact videos that the individual organisations have created.

The main video above includes all eight examples. You can really get a true sense of the positive impact the Tackling Inequalities Fund has made when watching this video. Plus, you can see the impact videos individually below, along with a brief description of each organisation.
