The Peoples Health Trust has announced that it is seeking applications for funding through the Active Communities Programme. Grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 are available to local community groups for projects lasting up to two years with great ideas to make their communities even better places to live.
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. The Peoples Health Trust is looking to support small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. This could be a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages. These ideas could be based in one neighbourhood, or cover a wider area. The programme also supports Communities of Interest. These are groups 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.
This funding round covers Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Merseyside and the closing date for applications is 1pm on the 7th November 2018.
