The Aviva Community Fund offers support and funding for projects that could make a real impact in local communities.
Projects should be in one of the following categories:
Health & Wellbeing - These should aim to make people feel better on a number of levels, improving physical, mental and emotional health and boosting social interaction. It’s open to people of all ages and situations. This includes those caring for others and those that need care.
Skills for Life- aims to help communities and individuals improve their lives by learning useful new skills, particularly financial literacy and digital skills. Community projects in this category can help people of all ages and backgrounds – from school children to groups for older people.
Environment - community projects trying to improve their natural surroundings. They are looking for projects that will make a positive change to the local area. That could be anything from improving sustainability to regenerating community areas to creating more natural habitats for wildlife.
Whatever your project, if you’re trying to make sure the next generation has a better environment to enjoy, they want to hear from you. Projects should make a positive difference in your community, be associated with a community organisation or charity, take place in the UK, and be completed or well underway before 31 December 2019. They should ideally be completed with the requested funding alone.
