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 £50,000 for projects lasting up to two years. 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.  If you are interested in applying contact Kevin McKenna at Croydon Council first as he may be able to put you in touch with other partners email Kevin.McKenna@croydon.gov.uk
                                                                                                                                                       
Also looking for great ideas from communities of interest - 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.  

Applying couldn't be easier. It's an online process with a step by step guide from start to finish.
