In total, more than £4 million is up for grabs for communities across the UK and the public will ultimately decide where this much-needed funding will go.
The People’s Projects not only delivers vital grants to the heart of UK communities, but also raises awareness of the incredible work of community groups across the country.
It was launched this week, after a three-year break, giving people across Scotland the chance to have their say in how National Lottery funding should be put to good use in their local area.
All 95 shortlisted groups will take part in a national campaign in May next year, with the winners being decided by public vote. Since it started in 2005, The People’s Projects has awarded around £45 million to over 1000 projects.
For more information and to apply visit www.thepeoplesprojects.org.uk. The deadline is 12pm on Friday, October 7, although groups are urged to apply early as the programme may close sooner depending on the volume of applications.
