PEOPLE’S MILLIONS – APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

Many community groups will be interested to learn that applications for community funding from ‘The People’s Millions’ is now open and will run until noon on Friday 16th May.

The competition has been running since 2005 and is a great way to inspire your local community.  The People’s Millions is run by the Big Lottery Fund and ITV and was set up to award National Lottery funding to community projects up and down the UK that will improve the lives of local people.

This year there are four awards of up to £50,000 on offer in each of the 19 ITV and STV regional news areas across the UK.  The competition is open to voluntary and community groups, schools, statutory health bodies and local organisations or partnerships.  Your submission can cover a wide range of topics from youth and environmental projects to local schemes that help improve employment prospects or just ideas to help local people make their community a better place to live.

The projects that are successfully shortlisted will feature on STV regional news in November 2014 over three nights competing for viewers’ voters.  To enter please go to:
