The 1000 Lives community matched fund is open 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 £500 in the 3rd round.

The third round of funding is open for applications and closes on Friday the 21st November 2014.

There are four different funding themes:

Every project, under all the themes, must also:

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

All applicants must show how volunteers will give their time to your project.
