LOCAL groups and organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better are now invited to apply for funding to turn their ideas into reality.
People’s Health Trust has just launched Active Communities in South West England – a funding scheme for local people wanting to create fairer places to grow, live, work and age.
Using money raised by HealthTotal through The Health Lottery, People’s Health Trust is looking to invest in projects that support people living in the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods of Gloucestershire and Swindon.
Active Communities funds not-for-profit groups with an income of less than £350,000 a year, 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.
The closing date for applications is 1pm on August 20.To apply, visit www. peopleshealthtrust. org.uk.
