Apply for funding 

Quick guide

To apply for a grant from People's Health Trust's Active Communities funding programme, you must first check whether your area is open for funding. If you meet our criteria for Active Communities, you can begin the application process by submitting a quick Stage 1 application form. If successful, you will be invited to submit a more detailed Stage 2 application form.
Who can apply for funding?
You can only apply for funding from the Active Communities programme if:

  • Your organisation supports people to create or shape local projects that will help their community or neighbourhood to become even better
  • You are non-profit
  • Your income is less than £350,000 a year, or an average of £350,000 or less over the  last  two years
  • You have less than six months’ annual running costs in savings (with no restrictions on the money) after you have deducted the grant you wish to request from us
  • Your organisation is constituted and is more than three months old

We run a two stage application process. You must submit your Stage 1 application form by the advertised closing date for your area - you can find this by using the map below.

Within five working days of you submitting your Stage 1 application form, we will advise you whether or not you are being invited to submit a full Stage 2 application. You will have three weeks to complete the Stage 2 application form after the Stage 1 closing date.

Call us on 020 7749 9100, or email us, if you would like any help and support at any stage of this process. Please check if your local lottery area is open for funding.
