In December 2021, Fight for Peace awarded the Northern Powerhouse Boxing Academy just under £5,000 through Sport England’s Tackling Inequalities Fund (TIF) initiative. The fund exists to help to reduce the negative impact of coronavirus and help community groups to grow and help more people.
NPBA worked closely with Fight for Peace throughout the funding period. Some of the highlights were connecting with and hearing from similar organisations around the UK as well as receiving guidance and working with FFP to develop more robust club policies.
