Current Opportunities

 

  

Disability Rights UK (DR UK) are acting as a National Partner of Sport England to deliver grant money from the Tackling Inequalities Fund to local, community-based organisations, supporting disabled people and/or people with long-term health conditions.
 
DR UK supports the aim of reducing the inequalities in physical activity experienced by disabled people and people with long term health conditions, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. They are keen to reduce the inequalities experienced by disabled people and those with long term health conditions from Ethnically Diverse Communities and they are encouraging applications that seek to redress the imbalance. Grants of up to £3,000 are being offered as part of the fund for small-scale project ideas. Funding should be spent by recipient organisations as soon as possible, as the aim of the fund is to address the short-term negative impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, as opposed to funding longer-term projects.
