People with great ideas to tackle inequalities in physical activity are being invited to apply to Ideas to Action – a new programme delivered by Design Council, supported by Sport England and funded by the National Lottery.  

These physical activity inequalities have existed for many years, and they have persisted, or even worsened, through the pandemic. Ideas to Action aims to support groups of people who are particularly less likely to be active right now. The programme is about doing things differently: working together and designing new solutions – based on what people want and need – to bring about positive, lasting change.  

To find out more about the programme, including further eligibility criteria, please go to ideastoaction.design
