A funding programme has been set up to kick-start community projects in Fenland’s most disadvantaged areas.

Active Communities in Eastern England, which has been launched by the People’s Health Trust, will enable not-for-profit groups with an income of less than £350,000 to apply for grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

Areas eligible for funding in Fenland include Waterlees, Staithe, Medworth, Hill, Clarkson, Elm, Christchurch, Parson Drove, Wisbech St Mary and March East and West.

John Hume, chief executive of People’s Health Trust, said: “We’re looking to support ideas designed and run by local people which help create even stronger links and ties within communities.

“Whether it’s a tenants and residents’ mediation group or a computer skills group for older people, we’re interested to hear about it.

“Applying couldn’t be easier - it’s about local people telling us what would make their local community an even better place grow, live, work and age. It’s an online process with a step by step guide from start to finish.”

The closing date for applications is 1pm on July 2. To apply for funding, visit www.peopleshealthtrust.org.uk.
