Cambridgeshire groups and organisations with ideas to improve their communities can apply for funding to turn them into reality.

Using money raised by HealthCommit through The Health Lottery, People’s Health Trust is looking to invest in projects that support people living in the most disadvantaged neighbourhoods of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

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 £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

John Hume, chief executive of People’s Health Trust, says: “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 women’s volunteering group run by and for Bengali women; a computer skills support group run for and by older people; support for local people to become community organisers; or young people living with mental ill-health

“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.”
