Groundwork Announces New Round of Funding for London Greening Projects

05 November 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Our Space Award is now open to non-profit community groups, charities and schools for projects taking place in disused, open spaces in Greater London.

Groups may consist of three or more people who meet regularly. They do not need to be formally arranged or constituted to be eligible to apply.

The following grants are available:

  • Small grants of £500 to £2,000.
  • Standard grants of £2,000 to £5,000.
  • Flagship grants of £5,000 to £20,000.

Flagship grants are primarily intended for organisations who have previously delivered a successful Our Space Award project.

Activities should contribute to a number of wider social and environmental objectives, including:

  • Tree planting (it is hoped that each project will plant at least one tree).
  • Climate resilience and adaptation to climate change.
  • Improvements to water quality and drainage through planting and reducing hard surfaces.
  • Ecological and biodiversity benefits.
  • Climate education alongside physical improvements.
  • Improving air quality.
  • Reducing health inequalities and isolation.

Funding can cover a variety of items related to projects including materials, sessional worker fees, plants, tools and storage.

The Award aims to ensure funding is available for groups who may not have accessed grant funding previously as well as those with a track record of project delivery.

There will be an online workshop on 30 November 2021 to answer any questions about the fund.

How To Apply

The deadline to apply is 15 December 2021 (12pm).
