New funding available for local groups in parts of East Midlands

Published Wednesday, 27 November 2019

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 - a funding programme for local people wanting to create fairer places to grow, live, work and age - in parts of Mansfield, Ashfield, Corby, Erewash, Wellingborough, Kettering and Charnwood.

Using money raised by Health Lottery East Midlands, People’s Health Trust is looking to invest in projects that support people living in neighbourhoods or communities experiencing the most disadvantage in parts of Mansfield, Ashfield, Corby, Erewash, Wellingborough, Kettering and Charnwood.

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 £40,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

The closing date for applications is 1pm on Wednesday, 11 December 2019.
