Funding: Active Communities Trust Funding programme


Active Communities is a funding programme for local people with great ideas about how to help create fairer places to grow, live, work and age well. The People's Health Trust is looking for ideas which will create stronger connections between people and help make their local neighbourhoods even better. 

You can only apply for funding from the Active Communities programme if:

Applicants need to have a great idea, designed and led by local people which will:

  • Take place within a small area for a small group of people such as 20 or 30 streets or a couple of villages.
  • Run for between nine months and two years.
  • Need investment of between £5,000 and £25,000 per year (up to £50,000 for two years).
  • Take place in one of the areas People's Health Trust show as most needing the funding.


The programme is opening soon in a number of areas in England, Wales and Scotland.
