Many people experience challenges at some point in their lives. Through Improving Lives we aim to support activity that helps people overcome these difficulties and become more resilient.

We want to fund activity that means people:

  • are better able to identify ways to take control over their lives and build resilience
  • are able to shape the activities and services they use to better meet their needs
  • have more access to support and opportunities to improve their lives.

As of 1 October 2020 we changed our process for Improving Lives and there is only one application form. The maximum grant size is now £200,000 and the maximum grant length is three years.
