The 1000 Lives Network has been given a small pot of money to award as community matched funding to community based groups or organisations for a new project which involves people as volunteers, especially those who are not currently active in their communities.

You can apply for up to £1000.   The total fund available is £4000 so we expect to fund at least four projects. There will be a second round of funding in spring 2014.

There are four different funding themes:

  1. Young People,
  2. Outdoors and/or Food,
  3. Facing Poverty
  4. General Theme.

Every project, under all the themes, must:

  • support the Five Ways to Wellbeing
  • be organised by or with local people and benefit a range of local people
  • encourage people to take part in community action, in NEW ways
  • encourage people to join the 1000 Lives Network
