Active Communities is a funding programme for community groups and not-for-profit organisations. Local groups and organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to live are invited to apply for investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years.
Active Communities is looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. They must be non-profits constituted for at least 3 months with income of less than £350,000 a year, or an average of £350,000 over two years.
Organisations in various areas of the country including Wiltshire, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire Wigan and Bolton can apply for funding and Active Communities funding will soon open in other areas of the country.
