Community Grants

Applying for a Community Grant

Who Can Apply?

The grant is available within the green shaded area on the map to community groups who wish to conserve, enhance, access, explain and celebrate their local landscape.

How Much Grant is Available?

The maximum grant available is £1,000 and the payment is limited to 66% of the total project cost. Applicants will also benefit from the support and expertise of the Partnership. Applicants must provide match funding in the form of cash, in-kind contribution or volunteer time. This could be another funding bid, existing funds in a group, equipment or materials, or volunteer time.

Discussion with the Community Officer is essential prior to an application being made.

What Projects can receive support?

  • Projects that conserve or restore natural or built landscape features. For example a village pond.
  • Projects that raise awareness of the meres and mosses landscape. This might be a guided walk, a talk or historical research.
  • Projects that improve public access to the landscape. This could be improvements to rights of way, a walks leaflet or audio trail.
  • Surveys that help to develop local understanding of the landscape, feed into a plan or gather information prior to a practical project. This may include community wildlife surveys, a skills audit or a community consultation.
  • Projects that celebrate the locality and engage a broad sector of the community. This could be a photographic competition, beating the bounds, an environmental arts event or a school open day.
