People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding programme- FREE Zoom Session

Added: 22/06/2020

Voluntary Action Leeds

Grants up to £40,000 to Leeds organisations supporting people to create or shape local projects to make their community/neighbourhoods better places, including support for communities of interest.

Thursday 25th June 2020

Time: 1pm – 2.30 pm

The People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding programme is providing grants of £5,000 – £40,000 over up to 2 years for supporting people to create or shape local projects to make their community/neighbourhood an even better place to live.

The funding is for projects in specific areas of Leeds where health inequalities are highest. The trust is looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. So you could be a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages or a community of interest – where a group of people come together who have a shared issue they want to address, this could be neighbourhood based or wider.

Previously funded ideas: a group for local older and younger people to get together to do activities (e.g. craft, technology, history); a group for adults to learn English and enterprise skills connected to sewing; a local magazine written by and for the benefit of disabled people; a community café created and run by single parents as a space to meet, a tenants action group for people living on an estate.

The short on-line first stage application form must be completed by 1pm on 1st July. Further details are at:

Voluntary Action Leeds will be delivering a course via Zoom to help you apply to the fund covering:

Tips on how to complete the key questions on the stage one application.

The session is suitable for any not-for-profit, voluntary or community group in Leeds (including registered charities, constituted groups, CIC’s limited by guarantee etc.) with an income of under £350,000 looking to apply to The People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities.

The session will be delivered by Kaye Wilson and will be free to Leeds based not-for-profit organisations.
It will help you to get more out of the session if you have read the funders guidance and have a project in mind.
