People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding – open until 4th October

Looking for local funding?

People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding programme is now open in Oxfordshire until 1pm on Thursday 4th October. Please see the funding flash here with further details. 

About the programme

Active Communities is a funding programme for not-for-profit groups with an income of less than £350,000 a year, or an average of £350,000 over two years, seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

Projects need to:

·         Be designed and led by local people

·         Create stronger connections between people by supporting them to meet up regularly (weekly, fortnightly or monthly, for at least one year)

·         Be for people who experience greater social and economic disadvantage than people living in other parts of the country

·          Be either:

o   small and local, for example, involving residents living in a few streets, an estate, a small village and working in one or more of our ‘fundable neighbourhoods’, or

o   a community of interest – a group of people who have shared experiences, characteristics or common interests and wish to come together to address specific issues that are important to them. They may live across a wider area but they must live close enough to each other to meet up regularly.

Groups can apply online here:

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.

Using money raised by Health Lottery South East, People’s Health Trust has opened Active Communities in parts of Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.

We 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 us on 020 7749 9100 or email us.

The deadline for Stage 1 applications is 1pm on Thursday, 4 October.
