Funding available from the People's Health Trust
Somerset Community Foundation is working in partnership with the People's Health Trust to support groups in Somerset applying to Active Communities HealthFull.
Grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 are available for Somerset groups with an annual income of less than £350,000 for projects targeting inequality and disadvantage in specific neighbourhoods within Somerset: a map is here.
Despite the name, the People's Health Trust does not fund projects that are strictly health-related or those tackling certain diseases (eg. cancer, diabetes, stroke) or behaviour-changing (such as healthy eating, giving up smoking, etc). The programme is targeted at grassroots groups run by and for disadvantaged communities.
For an expression of interest form, please contact Tessa Hibbert on 01749 344 949. The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is 13 January 2016.
