Together for Our Planet Community Fund - Final Reminder

09 November 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Not-for-profit groups still have time to apply for funding for small-scale community projects in the UK to take action on climate change.

UK voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations have just over a week to apply for their share of a climate engagement fund which has been increased by £1 million to now total £3.5 million.

The Together for Our Planet programme is offering grants of £1,000 to £10,000 for activities relating to the climate in one of the following areas:

  • Food.
  • Transport.
  • Energy.
  • Waste and consumption.
  • The natural environment.

Approximately 400 to 500 awards will be made through this National Lottery Community Fund programme, with each project required to meet at least two of the following criteria:

  • Support the development of a longer-term climate action within communities after the COP26 event.
  • Encourage communities to plan for the climate emergency.
  • Celebrate the importance of community-led climate action and encourage more people to get involved.
  • Build resilience in communities hardest hit by climate change.
  • Provide jobs, skills or training opportunities for communities which support climate action.

The funder is particularly interested in applications from groups who are starting to think about taking action on climate change in their communities.

The deadline for applications is 18 November 2021 (5pm).


How To Apply

The deadline for applications is 18 November 2021 (5pm).

It is expected that most of the funding awarded will be to support activities taking place after the COP26 conference (which runs from 1 to 12 November 2021).

Guidance notes and the online application form are available at the National Lottery Community Fund website.
