People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding programme is now open in Southampton, Portsmouth, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight until 1pm on Thursday 4th October. Please see the funding flash here with further details. Please feel free to share this with local group and networks.

About the programme

Active Communities is a funding programme for not-for-profit groups 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.


Projects need to:

·         Be designed and led by local people

·         Create stronger connections between people by supporting them to meet up regularly (weekly, fortnightly or monthly, for at least one year)

·         Be for people who experience greater social and economic disadvantage than people living in other parts of the country

·         Be either:

o   small and local, for example, involving residents living in a few streets, an estate, a small village and working in one or more of our ‘fundable neighbourhoods’, or

o   a community of interest – a group of people who have shared experiences, characteristics or common interests and wish to come together to address specific issues that are important to them. They may live across a wider area but they must live close enough to each other to meet up regularly.
