Sport England and RYA Tacking Inequalities Funding

The RYA has been awarded £150,000 of Sport England funding that is to be allocated to clubs and centres to help reduce the negative impact of COVID-19 and the widening of the inequalities in sport and physical activity.  Through this funding RYA OnBoard and Sailability venues in England can 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

This funding is only for non-profit organisations in England. 

Sport England are looking for the funding to be utilised and projects delivered as soon as practically possible.  They have set a date as 31st January 2021 for completion although they do understand that some projects and delivery may be slightly outside of this.  Please make it clear in your application when you expect your project to be delivered.
