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

Organisations in England (outside London) should be working to increase the availability of exercise opportunities for people with long-term health conditions in local communities, to reduce the negative impact of coronavirus and the widening of the inequalities in sport and physical activity.

Applications are particularly welcome from groups who also support people from lower socio-economic groups, Black, Asian and/or Minority Ethnic communities and disabled people.
