Sport England has announced the first group of 43 partners it is working with to deliver system-wide change under the Uniting the Movement Strategy to level up access to sport and physical activity across the country. Partners – who have all committed to tackling inequalities – will receive a total of £193 million of National Lottery and government funding between them, with each partner investment lasting up to five years.
Partners include the youth charity StreetGames, disability charity Activity Alliance, talented young athletes’ charity SportsAid, and sports’ national governing bodies from England Boxing to British Wheelchair Basketball, plus Active Partnerships working across England – from County Durham to Devon.
This change in the organisation’s investment model will provide longer term, upfront certainty of funding as organisations recover and reinvent from the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
