Active Communities is a funding programme for community groups and not-for-profit organisations, with an income of less than £350,000 a year or an average of £350,000 over two years.
It's for projects seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years. We're looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. By small, we mean just a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages.
We're also looking for great ideas from communities of interest. By this we mean a group of people who have things in common and wish to come together to address something that is important to them. These ideas could be based in one neighbourhood, or cover a wider area but they must live close enough to each other to meet up regularly.
We run a two stage application process that begins with an online form. There's step by step guidance to help you along the way but if you need any support, please call us on 020 7749 9100 or email us.
They plan to open Active Communities in other areas of Great Britain in the future. The planned openings are outlined below.
Please note that to make sure our funds are distributed equitably across Great Britain, sometimes we will restrict the areas that are eligible to apply.
