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 short Stage 1 application form. If successful, you will be invited to provide more information in a 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 a not for profit organisation or group
  • 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 has been constituted for at least three months

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.

We will advise you within 10 working days after the advertised closing date for your area, whether or not you are being invited to submit a full Stage 2 application. After we have advised you if you have been invited to Stage 2, you will have at least three weeks to complete the Stage 2 application form. You will know if you have been successful at Stage 2 within 10-12 weeks after the closing date for Stage 2 applications for your area.

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. 

We are currently making changes to our website so no programmes are open at the moment. We will be opening again later in January. If you want to see if your area is opening soon, please click here.

Click on the map to find out about funding in your area. Zoom in using the + sign in the right-hand corner of the map if you need to.

You have already completed an application for funding, are you sure you would like to submit another application? You should only submit another application if it is for a different project. If you want to amend an application that has already been submitted, please call us on 020 7749 9100.
