The OneFamily Foundation Community Awards returns on 21st June and is available to projects, schemes and initiatives that aim to improve the lives of people in the UK.

Grants of up to £5000, £10,000 or £25,000 with up to 32 winners are available across four varied categories:

  • Health, Disability & Social Care – Projects that help people with mental health problems, learning or physical disabilities or those in respite care
  • Lifelong Learning – Projects that encourage people of all ages to learn something new and develop their skills
  • Active Living – Projects that help people of all ages to enjoy a fitter, happier lifestyle
  • Community Groups – Projects that help to make a positive difference for those in the community

You’ll need to be an OneFamily customer to nominate a project for a Community Award, but don’t worry if you’re not – OneFamily has over 2 million customers, so you can get involved by finding a one who can nominate a project on your behalf.

Ask your friends, family and colleagues if they are OneFamily customers and if they’d be able to get behind your project.

You can download a free toolkit to help with nominations here.

You can find out more about the Community Awards on the OneFamily Foundation website.
