Organisations can apply to The People’s Projects online, from which shortlisted projects then have a chance to be part of a television broadcast and a public vote.
Applicants are invited to tell us what they have achieved with their recent funding, and how they would use up to £50,000 of funding to develop their work to build stronger communities. We’re looking for inspiring projects that bring people together and make their local community a stronger and happier place.
Each shortlisted project will work with ITV, STV or UTV to create a short film that will appear on television, encouraging people to get behind their project and secure votes as part of their campaign.
In April 2019, shortlisted projects will be featured on TV followed by a public vote in each region. The projects with the most votes will secure funding from the National Lottery.
