Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council are working with People’s Health Trust to help deliver project funding for community organisations, and groups across Edinburgh. The People’s Health Trust’s aim is to create a society without health inequalities, by investing in people with great ideas to create fairer places to grow, live, work and learn. Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council believe in a local approach to tackling certain issues that affect the wellbeing of Edinburgh’s citizens. Often it is smaller, local organisations and groups that help to provide the services and activities that make a real impact on the quality of life of an individual. It is the wish of both organisations to empower citizens, and create the space for community projects to flourish. There are two types of application – Active Communities and Communities of Interest Applications are now open and will close on 25 January 2017. Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council are supporting all applications throughout this time, and will be available for one-to-one guidance and to answer any questions you may have. Find out more details on funding eligibility and how to apply on the website of the Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council (external link).
