People’s Health Trust funding to open for small local organisations
Posted: Wed, 12 Sep 2018 15:59
Active Communities, through the People's Health Trust 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. They're 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 – this is 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.
It is a two-stage application process that begins with an online form.
The fund will open for applications from Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire – November 2018, so there is time to plan your project. Check their website as this date may be subject to change.
