Active Communities - People's Health Trust

Aims/priorities: Local groups and organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to live are 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 £40,000 for projects lasting up to two years. We're looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. By small, we mean just a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages.

We're also looking for great ideas from communities of interest. By this we 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.

Who can apply? Community groups, not-for-profit organisations and communities of interest.

Grant amount: Between £5,000 and £40,000 for projects lasting up to two years

Application process: They run a two stage application process that begins with an online form. There's step by step guidance, for more information and to apply click here
