Local groups and organisations with great ideas to make their communities an even better place to live are now invited to apply for funding to turn their ideas into reality.
People’s Health Trust has just launched Active Communities in Scotland – a funding programme for local people wanting to create fairer places to grow, live, work and age.
Using money raised by HealthKind through The Health Lottery, People’s Health Trust is looking to invest in projects that support people living in the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods of Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, the Highlands, Moray, the Western Isles, Shetland and the Orkney Islands.
Active Communities is a funding programme for 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.
John Hume, Chief Executive, People’s Health Trust, said: “We’re looking to support ideas designed and run by local people which help create even stronger links and ties within communities.
“Whether it’s a tenants and residents’ mediation group or a computer skills group for older people, we’re interested to hear about it.”
The closing date for applications is 1pm on Wednesday, April 30.
