Not-for-profit groups with an income of less than £350,000 a year can apply for cash between £5,000 and £40,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

John Hume, chief executive, 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 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 wishing to address access to work issues or discrimination, 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 to grow, live, work and age.”

Application closes 1pm on October 21. Visit
