The People’s Millions (UK)

Big in partnership with ITV has announced that The People’s Millions programme has re-opened for applications.  The People’s Millions is seeking applications from voluntary and community groups; local authorities; schools; statutory health bodies; and social enterprises for projects that help people to transform or enjoy their environment or communities. A total of £3.8 million is available through the programme and 4 awards of up to £50,000 will be made in each ITV region.  Examples of previously funded projects include; Ahoy Sailing centre in Deptford, a charity committed to giving young, old and disable people the chance to take part in a wide range of water-based sports; and Grey Court School to enable the school to undertake the first phase of a larger project which is to set up a small animal farm to encourage students and local people to get involved in producing locally grown fresh food. The closing date for applications is the 13th May 2013….
