People's Health Trust - Health Lottery Scotland Active Communities
Health Lottery Scotland is funded through a society lottery, designed to raise money to address health inequalities in Scotland. Active Community projects need to be designed and led by local people and support their neighbourhood or community to come together to address an issue that is important to them.
Projects will create stronger connections between people by supporting them to meet up regularly (weekly, fortnightly or monthly, for at least one year). They will benefit people who experience greater social and economic disadvantage than people living in other parts of the country in either:
small and local communities, for example, involving residents living in a few streets, an estate, a small village or
communities of interest (a group of people who have shared experiences, characteristics or common interests) who wish to come together to address specific issues.
