  • Active Communities - tackling the social determinants of health

    Created: 18/03/2021

    People’s Health Trust has just launched Active Communities in parts of Scotland – a funding programme for local people wanting to create fairer places to grow, live, work and age.

    Using money raised by Health Lottery Scotland, People’s Health Trust is looking to invest in projects that support people living in neighbourhoods or communities which are currently experiencing the highest levels of disadvantage.

    Who can apply?

    Active Communities is a funding programme for not-for-profit groups with an income of less than £350,000 a year, or an average of £350,000 over two years, seeking investment of between £5,000 and £40,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

    People’s Health Trust is looking to fund projects which tackle the social determinants of health. This could be through building social connections between people, helping people connect with their surroundings and giving communities the opportunity to take collective control over decisions in their local area.

    The closing date for applications is 13:00 on Wednesday 14 April 2021. To apply for funding, click here.
