Activity Investment for Low Income Groups

Created 3 months ago, updated 3 months ago

Sport England’s TIED Fund – Tackling Inactivity and Economic Disadvantage – uses National Lottery money to help those from lower socio-economic groups to get active. Victims of domestic abuse are among those who will benefit from a £3.3 million investment in tackling inactivity. A total of 34 projects will benefit from the investment.

Sport England’s latest Active Lives Adult Survey revealed that a third of people in lower paid and routine jobs are inactive – meaning they do fewer than 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a week. Results also showed that inactivity in this sector of the public is twice that of those on a high income in senior and managerial roles.
