Looking for local funding?
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 HealthRegard society lottery through The Health Lottery, People's Health Trust has opened Active Communities in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

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, 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.  

They run a two stage application process over a five week period that begins with a short 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 9105 or email them (apply@peopleshealthtrust.org.uk).

The deadline for applications is 1pm on Wednesday 26 October 2016.
