The Aviva Community Fund is back, offering support and funding to causes that make a real difference where you live. Put forward an idea that will benefit your community and it could get funding, ranging from up to £1,000 to up to £25,000.
To be eligible to apply, the project has to enrich the community, making positive changes to people’s lives in one of these four categories:
- Skills for life – The skills for life category aims to help communities and individuals improve their lives by learning useful new skills, particularly digital ones. Projects in this category can help people of all ages – from schools to groups for older people – develop skills to make their lives easier or more fulfilling.
- Health and wellbeing - The health and wellbeing category aims to help people take control of their physical and mental health. This is the category for any project linked to physical or mental health, sport, outdoor pursuits or anything of that nature.
- Community support - The community support category aims to help communities make their surroundings and aspects of their life sustainable. From regeneration projects to local support groups, this category offers support for anything that is important to your wider community, including community events.
- Inclusivity – The inclusivity category aims to help projects bring people together, no matter what their faith, colour, gender, abilities or sexual orientation. Projects in this category will help build relationships and develop closer ties within the community.
And to make sure projects of all sizes have the chance to win, Aviva are offering four funding levels:
- Up to £1,000
- Up to £5,000
- Up to £10,000
- Up to £25,000
