Together Fund grants reach 30 projects

Local projects benefiting from our allocation of Sport England's 'Together Fund' have now reached a total of 30 projects across the Dorset area.

We are also working alongside local Videographer Alex Bowdery from Playmotion visuals, to create a series of videos about how the funding has positively impacted the projects.

The Together Fund has been created to try and help reduce the negative impact on activity levels in these under-represented groups, with a specific focus on:

  • Lower socio-economic groups
  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities
  • Disabled people
  • People with long-term health conditions

This funding will enable community groups working with these audiences to continue to exist and engage with their communities, narrowing the gap for communities that need support.
