The Muslim Sports Foundation is proud to announce our partnership with Sport England in a bid to tackle inequalities within Muslim communities across England.  We will work with partners across the nation to deliver culturally appropriate services for physical activity, sport and wellbeing.

It rapidly became clear that Muslim communities were being disproportionately affected by the pandemic and it was significantly impacting their ability to be physically active.

In response, the Muslim Sports Foundation has partnered up with Sport England to become a partner of the Tackling Inequalities Fund. This has been created to try and help reduce the negative impact on activity levels in these under-represented groups, with a specific focus on one or more of the following:

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

The MSF has targeted funds that’s been designed to deal with the issues caused because of coronavirus and aims to support community organisations working with priority audiences, so they have a future to plan for.

Each partner we will be working will has an extensive network and reach to community organisations where there is an immediate need, and who may not be reached through traditional channels.

The Muslim Sports Foundation encourages applications from organisations who will deliver provisions in Muslim communities who may be have one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Low Socio-economic communities
  • Special Educational needs & Disabilities
  • Communities with low educational/employment rates
  • Individuals/ groups who are more susceptible to committing crime
  • Individuals/communities with long term/ chronic health issues
  • Suffering from poor mental health
  • Vulnerable Children and/or Adults
