  • People's Health Trust -  Active Communities Programme

    Created: 14/02/2022

    People's Health Trust's Active Communities Programme is now open in parts of Scotland, using money raised by Health Lottery Scotland.

    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 £40,000 for projects lasting up to two years. It's looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people, that focus on supporting groups in areas experiencing significant disadvantage.

    Who can apply?

    The fund is now open in the following areas: North Lanarkshire, Fife, Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen, Shetland, Orkney Islands and Clackmannanshire. The Programme is interested in hearing from community groups working with people who have faced the worst impacts during the pandemic such as disabled people, Black, African, Caribbean, Black British, Bangladeshi and Pakistani people, Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities and other groups who face a high level of disadvantage.

    How to apply?

    Apply online by visiting the Programme's website.
