Positive People Positive Places (4PS) is a grant scheme that gives local people the power to spend some money on a project to benefit their community.

We have a fund of £10,000 available to support small projects and activities that improve the quality of life of our customers and create more stable, cohesive and sustainable communities.

4Ps offers funding of between £250 and £750 to support ideas that benefit the community and work towards making our communities amazing places where people are proud to live.

We’ve funded some fantastic projects including lunch clubs, children’s play days, arts and crafts for older people, gardening groups and family history projects – if you have an idea that could benefit your community we want to hear about it!
