To apply for a grant from People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding programme, you must first check whether your area is open for funding. If you meet our criteria for Active Communities, you can begin the application process by submitting a quick Stage 1 application form. If successful, you will be invited to submit a more detailed Stage 2 application form.

- Your organisation is constituted and is more than three months old
The application process
There are four steps to Stage 1 of the application process
- Step 1 – Establish whether your organisation is eligible for funding – read the eligibility criteria
- Step 2 – Tell us if you are a ‘neighbourhood-based project’ or a ‘community of interest’ (we explain these terms later on)
- Step 3 – Establish if your neighbourhood or community is fundable
- Step 4 – Submit the completed Stage 1 application form
We will tell you whether you will be invited to complete the full Stage 2 application form within five working days of us receiving your Stage 1 application form.
