We welcome applications for projects which focus on:

  • Helping communities thrive
  • Improving the environment

Applicants must show clearly how their project meets one or more of the aims, and how it will improve an individual, group or community’s situation.

Grants of up to £5k will be considered.

To be considered for the November 2015 meeting you must submit your application no later than 16th October 2015.
