Local groups and organisations invited to apply for funding
Posted: Mon, 17 Sep 2018 12:03
Local groups and organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to live are now invited to apply for funding to turn their ideas into reality.
Active Communities is a funding programme for community groups and not-for-profit organisations, with an income of less than £350,000 a year or an average of £350,000 over two years.
It's for projects seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years. Peoples Health Trust are looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. By small, they mean just a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages.
They're also looking for great ideas from communities of interest. By this they mean a group of people who have things in common and wish to come together to address something that is important to them. These ideas could be based in one neighbourhood, or cover a wider area but they must live close enough to each other to meet up regularly.
They run a two stage application process that begins with an online form. There's step by step guidance to help you along the way but if you need any support, please call them on 020 7749 9100 or email us.
Using money raised through The Health Lottery, People's Health Trust has opened Active Communities in parts of Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. The Birmingham and West Midlands is scheduled to launch in March 2019.
