Funding Opportunities for Healthy Activity Programmes

There is currently a funding pot available to support organisatons across somerset to re-start or create new health and physical activity initiatives.

Tackling Inequalities Funding

SASP has been awarded £50,000 to distribute to community groups and organisations across Somerset. Our main target audience for this phase is those people with Long Term Health Conditions (LTHC).

1 in 4 people within Somerset live with a LTHC. During the COVID-19 pandemic, access to physical activity opportunities for people managing LTHC has been significantly reduced. Lockdowns and closure of venues have all contributed to fewer classes and groups taking place. With many of those individuals living with LTHC now having received both vaccinations, confidence for those shielding is returning. Many have suffered deconditioning or had limited movement for over 12 months.
