People’s Health Trust Active Communities Programme (Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees)

The Peoples Health Trust’s Active Communities programme in Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees (HealthBloom) is open for applications until 1 pm on the 3rd May 2017.

Through the Active Communities programme, grants of between £5,000 and £25,000 per year are available for projects target areas or communities (including communities of interest) most affected by health inequalities. For example, this could be a project covering a few streets, a housing estate, a small village or a group of people who have shared experiences, characteristics or common interests and wish to come together to address specific issues that are important to them. They may live across a wider area. Projects can run for between 9 months and 2 years. Groups can apply if they are non-profit, have a constitution and are more than three months old and the group’s income must be less than £350,000 a year, or an average of £350,000 over two years.

Previous projects supported include:

611 Asylum Work in Huddersfield who received a grant of £46,996 over two years and aims to benefit asylum seekers, failed asylum seekers and refugees from Huddersfield and neighbouring areas. It will provide a mixture of both practical and social support including advocacy, help with housing, paying bills, and support into training, education and employment.
