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 society lotteries through The Health Lottery, People’s Health Trust has opened Active Communities in HealthAble – Cumbria and Northumberland.

Active Communities is a funding programme for community groups and not-for-profit organisations, with an income of less than £350,000 a year, that are seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years. The projects should take place within a small area for a small group of people such as 20 or 30 streets or a couple of villages.

They are looking for projects which are designed and run by local people, create stronger connections between people and help people to make their community or neighbourhood even better. Project must last for between 9 months and 2 years and be operating in the top 35% most deprived wards in Cumbria and Northumberland – click here to see if you’re eligible.

Applying couldn’t be easier. It’s an online process with a step by step guide from start to finish.

The deadline for applications is 1pm on Wednesday 21 January 2015.
