The Active Communities funding programme is currently open in a number of areas of Great Britain, so check their website to find out if you can apply. It's for projects seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years. They are looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. By small, they mean just a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages. They are also looking for great ideas from communities of interest, including groups of people who have things in common and wish to come together to address something that is important to them. These ideas could be based in one neighbourhood, or cover a wider area.
 
The two stage application process runs over a six week period, beginning a short online form. For further information, visit the website below or ring 020 7697 4021.
