About this Event

GM Moving are excited to launch the Tackling Inequalities network, offering renewed support for organisations providing community sport, physical activity and movement opportunities across Greater Manchester. The first meeting of the network will be held on Monday 22nd April.

Through Sport England’s Together Fund investment across Greater Manchester, the communities hardest hit by the Coronavirus pandemic were able to continue to engage with their communities and support people from key target audiences to be physically active. The Fund has fostered new connections, utilised local knowledge and insight, and empowered communities, supported by our GM Moving Equalities Panel to ensure funding reached those who need it most. Moving forwards, building resilience and capacity to adapt in an ever-changing environment and enable sustainable opportunities is vitally important, and this was noted during our Together Fund Community Celebration event in July 2023.

Building on insight from this event, and recognising the vital role that community groups and organisations across Greater Manchester play in enabling active lives for all, this new network aims to:

  • Provide opportunities for groups who received Together Fund investment, as well as other community groups and organisations who contribute to active lives with a focus on tackling
    inequalities, to come together and share learning and ideas, pool resources and provide peer support.
  • Increase the visibility of the work groups and organisations are doing to tackle inequalities through physical activity, sport and movement, understanding current challenges and amplifying positive outcomes and achievements
  • Build capacity and develop key skills which will support groups to access future funding opportunities and develop their offer.
  • Connect groups and organisations with wider support offers which can help enable more sustainable sport and physical activity opportunities.

The first network meeting will take place on Monday 22nd April, with an invitation to stay for lunch and conversation.

During this first network meeting, we will explore the aims for the network in more depth, create space for groups to discuss what successes and challenges they are currently seeing, and hear from experts around how to communicate and present with confidence in relation to their work. A full agenda will be shared closer to the meeting date, however provisional timings for the day are 9:30am – 1:30pm.

Please do make us aware of any dietary or accessibility requirements when signing up, as well as any other questions you may have about the event.

Further network meetings are scheduled to take place on the following dates:

Monday 8th July 2024

Monday 7th October 2024

Monday 24th Feb 2025
