Grants of up to £10,000 for projects tackling inequalities in sport

The RYA has been awarded £150,000 of National Lottery Funding from Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund which aims to tackle inequalities in sport and physical activity and help reduce the negative impact of Covid-19.

Through this funding, RYA OnBoard and Sailability venues are invited to apply for grants of up to £10,000 that will be used for projects which engage with:

  • Lower socio-economic groups
  • Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with long term health conditions

The funding is available for non-profit organisations only, and the application criteria and application are online.

The deadline for completed application forms with supporting project plans is 5pm on 21 September.

“We know there are many Sailability sites and OnBoard venues that will be able to use this opportunity to deliver fantastic projects for these underrepresented communities,” says Alistair Dickson, RYA director of sport development.
