Projects we fund

Through our funding programmes we support projects in areas of England, Scotland and Wales experiencing the highest levels of disadvantage which are most affected by health inequalities. The projects we fund are led by communities themselves to improve health and wellbeing in their neighbourhoods.

Our funding is focused on the parts of Great Britain that need it most. Our Active Communities funding programme opens for applications in different areas at different times of the year.

Boosting skills is important but the main way we support people into work is by boosting their confidence. When you volunteer with your peers, you get the opportunity to work in a group and learn from each other which boosts your morale and you can then take this confidence into an interview or a workplace and show you’re ready for the job.
