Open call by Sport England for ideas to tackle inequalities


Sport England are looking for innovative solutions to help reduce inequalities and support those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over the next two weeks the charity is encouraging people to submit ideas that can help break down barriers to getting involved with activity, highlighting that these have long existed but have become more prominent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The solutions should address one of the following three challenges:

  • Changes in circumstances: those now facing financial pressures or caring responsibilities.
  • Mental health: certain groups who are likely to be experiencing new or worsening feelings of depression, stress or anxiety.
  • Digital exclusion: those without access to digital channels may not have the ability to be physically active at this time.

Sport England state that innovation can come in ‘all shapes and sizes’, it could be a whole new product, a new way of delivering an existing product or a tiny change with a big effect.
