Investing in Communities

Energise Me and Sport England are launching a new Investing in Communities project. The project will support groups aims to reduce widening inequalities in physical activity and sport. Physical activity boosts wellbeing. It also reduces our risk of developing major illnesses by up to 50%. Energise Me and Sport England want everyone to enjoy this benefit. But some communities are less likely to take part in regular physical activity. COVID-19 research shows that the pandemic has compounded this. It has led to challenges for voluntary groups too. The project will support:

  • people from lower income families

  • people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities

  • people living with long-term health conditions

  • people with disabilities
