From the People’s Health Trust
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 Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East and West Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde – a funding programme for local people wanting to create fairer places to grow, live, work and age.
Using money raised by HealthShine through The Health Lottery, People’s Health Trust is looking to invest in projects that support people living in the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods of Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East and West Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.
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 could be almost anything that encourages strong connections between people, and that help people to make their communities or neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.
The closing date for applications is 1pm on Wednesday 23 March 2016.
GCVS is working with the People’s Health trust to support organisations in Glasgow through the application process. Should you wish any advice in the first instance please contact GCVS Capacity Building Officer Phil Broadley on 0141 332 2444 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
