Local funding from People's Health Trust

March 31, 2015

Active Communities is a funding programme for community groups and not-for-profit organisations in different parts of Scotland, 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. It is run by People's Health Trust using money raised by society lotteries through The Health Lottery. 

The Trust is looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people, such as a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages.

The fund is also looking for great ideas from communities of interest - 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.

If you are based in Aberdeenshire, Highland, Moray, Nah-Eileanan Siar (Western Isles), Shetland and Orkney Islands, please apply to Active Communities in HealthKind.

**Update - the deadline for HealthKind has now been extended to Wednesday 29th April**

If you are based in Perth and Kinross, City of Dundee, Angus, Stirling, Fife, Clackmannanshire, Argyll and Bute,  please apply to Active Communities in HealthGift.

The deadline for applications is 1pm on Wednesday 15 April 2015.
