About the programme
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. 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. We offer funding of between £5,000 and £40,000 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: based in a small local area and working in one or more of our 'fundable neighbourhoods', or 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.
If you have any questions about the programme, please get in touch with Dorothea Eyewumi at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 020 4548 0935.
