Funding for local groups and organisations with great ideas in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire

The Health Lottery, East Midlands - will open in parts of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire on Wednesday 10 November.

Active Communities is a funding programme for community groups and not-for-profit organisations, 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 £40,000 for projects lasting up to two years.

They will be looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. By small, they mean just a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages.

They're also looking for great ideas from communities of interest. By this they mean a group of people who have things in common and wish to come together to address something that is important to them. These ideas could be based in one neighbourhood, or cover a wider area.

Funding is for one to two years.

More information about the fund will be issued nearer to the launch date.
