Community Ownership Fund

Together Fund from Sport England and Versus Arthritis

Versus Arthritis have teamed up with Sport England to distribute grants of up to £5,000 to organisations in England who want to support people with long-term health conditions to get active.


The fund will support organisations to increase the availability of exercise opportunities for people in local communities, to help aid recovery from the negative impact of COVID-19 and reduce the widening of inequalities in sport and physical activity.


Applications are particularly welcome from groups who also support people from culturally diverse communities, disabled people, and people from lower socio-economic groups.


They are particularly interested in supporting people with musculoskeletal conditions which affect 32% of people in England and anticipate that a number of groups will be eligible. More information about these conditions can be found here.


More information about the Together Fund, including how organisations can apply, can be found here.
