Foundation support TIF impact

Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is delighted to celebrate the positive impact the Tackling Inequalities Fund (TIF) has had on our Women’s, Physical Disability and Learning Disability Rugby League sides.

Over the next three days, the Foundation will be posting various images and information to honour the positive impact the fund has had in stamping out inequality laced throughout sport & physical activity.

The fund, set up in April 2020, was brought in following the start of the Covid-19 pandemic as part of Sport England’s support package to aid the sector.

The groups being aided by the fund are:

  • Lower socio-economic groups
  • People who are ethnically & culturally diverse
  • Disabled people
  • People suffering from long-term health problems

The Tackling Inequalities Fund has had a big impact on the sides situated within Wakefield Trinity, including aiding our Women’s and both our PDRL & LDSL sides, as they all continue to offer a diverse, inclusive package to support people of all backgrounds.

Speaking on the week we celebrate TIFs impact, Head of Health, Wellbeing & Inclusion at the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation, Colan Leung, said, “The difference Sport England and the Tackling Inequalities Fund has had on our programmes has been enormous.

“With the recent growth of our PDRL, LDRL & Women’s sides, it has been extremely useful, especially over the course of the pandemic.

“With the extra funding provided, we will be able to offer increased opportunities for more participants to get involved in our various sides, adding to the growth of the sport across the community.”
