Got a great idea for a project to inspire your community? Want to involve local people working together to tackle a problem? The People’s Millions could be the answer!
The Big Lottery Fund and UTV have launched the seventh year of The People’s Millions competition with groups being asked to develop projects that will capture the public’s imagination and inspire local people to make a lasting difference in their area.
Voluntary and community organisations, schools, local authorities and health bodies in Northern Ireland will be able to apply for up to £60,000 from this year’s competition. We will fund projects that inspire their local community, involve local people working together to tackle a problem or to improve their local community. Finalists will be showcased on UTV when the public will vote for the projects they want to receive the Lottery funding.
If you are interested in applying to this programme then please visit www.peoplesmillions.org.uk or phone 0845 0101112.
Groups will have until midday on 4 February 2011 to get their entries in. The winning projects will be awarded the funding in summer 2011.
