People's Health Trust - Community of interest
Projects need to:
- Be designed and led by local people
- Support their community to come together to address an issue that is important to them
- Create stronger connections between people by supporting them to meet up regularly (weekly, fortnightly or monthly, for at least one year)
- Be for people who experience greater social and economic disadvantage than people living in other parts of the country
In this round Northumberland groups would only be eligible for Communities of Interest funding:
A community of interest is a group of people who have shared experiences, characteristics or common interests and wish to come together to address issues that are important to them. They may live across a wider area but they must live close enough to each other to meet up regularly.
The minimum grant that you can apply for is £5,000 over one year, £7,500 over 18 months, or £10,000 over two years.
The maximum amount of funding we will invest in a project is £40,000. We are highly unlikely to fund a grant of £40,000 over one year.
One organisation can apply for a maximum of two projects in one area that is open for funding.
Existing Active Communities grant holders can only apply if their current grant ends within twelve months from the closing date of their funding area.
