15 November 2013

Local groups and organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to live are now invited to apply for funding to turn their ideas into reality.

People's Health Trust has opened Active Communities in areas of North West London, Merseyside, the East Midlands and South East England.

Applying couldn't be easier. It's an online process with a step by step guide from start to finish.
