Climate Action Fund – National Lottery Community Fund
We’re looking for projects that focus on the link between nature and climate. We want to fund projects that use nature to encourage more community-led climate action. We expect these projects to bring other important social and economic benefits. Like the creation of strong, resilient and healthy communities or the development of ‘green’ skills and jobs.
We’re interested in projects that can do at least one of the following:
- show how creating a deeper connection with nature will lead to changing people’s behaviours and greater care for the environment
- show how by bringing nature back into the places we live and work, we can help communities to reduce or adapt to the impacts of climate change.
We want all the projects we fund to be creative, include everyone and try out new things. Projects also need to show how they can achieve longer-term, larger change that goes beyond the communities they’re directly working with.
We’ll accept applications from either:
- local partnerships
- UK-wide partnerships which are delivered across at least two UK countries (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales).
The programme will provide grants of up to £1.5 million over 2 to 5 years, with most projects between £300,000 and £500,000. We’re looking to fund between 12 and 15 projects.
Development grants of £50,000 to £150,000 are also available over 12 to 18 months. For further details on the programme head to the National Lottery Community Fund website…
