We’ve awarded £80,000 from Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund so far across Hertfordshire, as part of our Active Local initiative.

Tackling Inequalities Fund (TIF) is about much more than funding. It helped us to connect with new partners and has been key in developing relationships with the areas; identifying the people, places and partnerships that are at the centre of their community. Active Local is all about working collaboratively and we must say a huge thank you the many local organisations, clubs and partners who have helped us to identify who and what needs funding. To them, we say a huge thank you.
