Help Transform a Space with Growing a Greener Britain05-Dec-2017
Growing a Greener Britain continues to provide grants to registered or established community groups for projects which help transform green spaces in Great Britain.
Established community groups can apply for grants of up to £1,000 for projects which transform green spaces in Great Britain.
The projects they will consider include:
- Improvements or modifications to publicly-accessible parks, gardens, cemeteries; and green open spaces which can include green spaces in social housing schemes.
- Work in state school grounds.
- Work in privately owned grounds that encourage the public to enter and enjoy them free of charge, including some university grounds.
- Creating wildlife areas and ponds.
- Improvement of disabled access.
They will also fund projects that make areas safer or more family-friendly, as well as Environmental and Biodiversity management/education projects in local communities.
They will also look to provide funding for training or employment projects which offer opportunities for young people who are not currently in training or employment.
To qualify, GGB ask that you meet their charitable objectives which include:
- Creating improvements to free, publicly accessible green space.
- Providing local employment opportunities through the creation of maintenance projects.
- Providing training and work experience opportunities for those in the local community.
- Promoting green open spaces within the local community.
Applicants are advised that funding is limited and as such some projects may not receive funding;
but because the scheme can be seen as a continuous rolling programme, GGB say there is no real deadline and so applications can be accepted at any time.
